Promising Youngster Signs First Professional Contract

Ryan Barrett signed his first professional contract with Newcastle United on Monday.

Here is the tweet Ryan sent out commemorating this momentous occasion in his career:

Ryan was one of three 2nd year scholarship players who were offered contracts earlier in June.

Ryan is an U17 Welsh International right-back who has just turned 18 in June. He made 7 appearances for the Newcastle U18s last season before being promoted into the U23s in January and making 4 appearances for them.

We would like to congratulate Ryan and hope that he has a tremendous career ahead of him.
