Roache Signs Professional Contract

Republic of Ireland Youth International Pens Deal

29 June 2017

Republic of Ireland youth international Rowan Roache has agreed his first professional contract with the club.

The forward, a second year scholar, has signed an initial two-year deal at Bloomfield Road, with the club holding the option to extend it by a further 12 months.

"It's a great feeling because I've been here for nearly three years now," the 17-year-old told the official website. 

"I just want to do my best in pre-season and get myself physically alongside all the other boys, because that's an area I obviously need to improve on. 

"I'm only 17 so I really need to push on and make myself better, so that it hopefully shows on the pitch." 

Roache was part of the club's double-winning youth team last season and scored 30 goals in 31 matches for the side.
