Stopper signs until 2018- Ryan Schofield signs first pro contract at Huddersfield Town
- Young goalkeeper puts pen to paper until 2018
- Comments from Academy Manager Steve Weaver
Huddersfield Town Academy scholar Ryan Schofield has today signed his first professional contract at the Club.
Ryan, who hails from Lepton, first joined the Town Academy as an eight year old. Having turned 17 years old on 11 December, he’s now put pen to paper on a contract that runs until the summer of 2018.
A goalkeeper in the first year of his two year scholarship, Ryan received his first call-up to the England Under-18 squad in November 2016.
Schofield also featured in last season's Under-21 Professional Development League 2 Play-Off Final where he impressed with some brilliant saves as the Terriers defeated Sheffield United to win the national title.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Steve Weaver commented:
“The Academy’s ethos is that if you show development and potential, the opportunities to progress will always exist at Huddersfield Town.
“Ryan has done exactly that over a good number of years, capped off with his recent recognition at international level for England.
“The hard work continues now for Ryan and the coaches, with the ultimate aim of helping him develop into a player for this Club at Sky Bet Championship level and beyond.”
