- Contract until 2024, Club hold option for 2025
- Comments from Academy Manager Emyr Humphreys below

Highly rated Academy central defender David Adewoju has committed his future to Town until at least 2024!

Having previously been on the books of Queens Park Rangers, the tall, left-footed central defender joined the Town Academy in the summer of 2020 at Under-17 level.

The first professional contract of his career, this deal will see the young defender given time to progress from Under-19 to B Team level at the Club, with Town holding the option of additional year in 2025.

An important season for his development, Adewoju has spent time out on work experience at Ossett United this season, where he gained his first experience of senior football.

Academy Manager Emyr Humphreys commented:

“David has progressed really well through our Under-17 and Under-19 levels.

“Signing his first professional contract is a significant step and a sign of how well he’s performed.

“His next challenge is to again raise his standards and cement himself within the Town B Team.

“Having spent some time with Ossett United, there’s also the possibility of gaining further experience out on loan at a higher level in the coming months as well.”

Congratulations to David on his new contract!
