NEW CONTRACT: Jack signs first pro deal

Striker Jack Massey signs his first professional contract with the Reds

20 July 2023

Accrington Stanley striker Jack Massey has today signed his first professional contract with the club.

Massey, who made a total of 22 appearances for the Under-18s, helped the Reds reach the third round of last season's FA Youth Cup and scored 11 goals in 2022/23; including the opener against Leeds United.

The 18-year-old was then rewarded with his Under-23s debut in March and has featured in this summer's pre-season friendlies at home to Blackburn Rovers and Clitheroe.

John Coleman said: "Jack has got something that a lot of people haven't got, which is blistering pace. We have got to refine that and use that to the best of his ability.

"He is still learning the game but hopefully we can get the best out of what he can deliver."

Academy Manager, Duncan Fearnhead added: "Jack's journey took a different route as he initially joined the Accrington Stanley Community Trust college team before transitioning to the youth team.

"As a forward or wide player, Jack has demonstrated promise, particularly evident in his pace and finishing ability, exemplified by his goal against Leeds United in the FA Youth Cup."

Jack said: "It feels amazing, it's a dream come true really. Pre-season has been tough so far, but it's what we've got to do to play.

"It's good to look forward to and makes you want to work that bit harder, and aim for the first team."

The one-year contract is subject to EFL and FA ratification.
