NEW CONTRACT: Perritt signs a new two-year deal

Defender Harry Perritt signs a new two-year contract with the club

14 July 2021

Accrington Stanley defender Harry Perritt has today signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old is a product of the club's Academy system, with the defender having signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2019.

He made his first team debut in the Papa John's Trophy in January, before coming on as a second half substitute two months later in the 3-1 Sky Bet League One victory over Wigan Athletic.

Perritt, who primarily operates as either a full-back or a winger, also impressed at centre-back for Ged Brannan's Under-23s side last season.

The Knowsley-born defender's new deal will keep him at the Wham Stadium until the summer of 2023.

John Coleman said: "This is a big year for Harry, he's got to try and make that step to being a regular in the squad.

"He's still learning his trade, so hopefully he'll have a good season and he'll learn more being around the first team.

"Harry has managed to overcome two big injury setbacks over the last two years and he works ever so hard on his fitness.

"He's a good all-rounder, he ticks all the boxes in that he attacks the ball well and he's a good footballer."

Harry said: "Last year was hard through injury, but I'm really happy to get it over the line and get ready for the season.

"It'll be a massive change for me as I've never really played in front of the Accrington fans.

"I'm looking forward to it because I know how supportive they are of younger players coming through, so I'm excited to play in front of them making noise."

A full interview video with Harry will be uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel later today, CLICK HERE to find out more!
