Pro Contract For Stephen

Posted on: Fri 05 May 2006

  Academy youngster Stephen Gleeson has signed a professional contract with Wolves.

  The 17-year-old midfielder put pen to paper on a three-year deal this morning, following in the footsteps of Mark Davies, Daniel Jones,  Mark Little, Chris Cornes, Wayne Hennessey and Martin Riley who have all signed pro contracts under Glenn Hoddle.

  Dublin-born Stephen has made 16 appearances in the reserve team this season, and has scored four goals.

  "I am delighted for Stephen, he has worked very hard," says academy manager, Chris Evans.

  "This is just reward for the progress that he has shown to date. He has done well at youth level, enjoying a super run in the FA Youth Cup last year.


  "Both this and last season he played a lot of reserve games, scoring goals for the second team, and making progress at international level, as well.

  "Stephen is a playmaker, he has good pace and he gets forward, with an eye for goal.

  "The manager has had him training with the first team squad from time to time and he has obviously been impressed with what he has seen.

  "All of our young players are looking to impress the manager of this football club and it is important that we, as an academy, can continue to deliver players of a high calibre, like Stephen."
