Dobra Signs First Pro Deal
Wednesday, 27th Feb 2019 16:54

Academy scholar Armando Dobra has signed his first professional deal with the Blues.

The 17-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract which runs to 2020 with the club having an option to extend it for a further season.

Dobra joined Town from the Essex-based Finesse Football Academy as an U15 and became a full-time scholar in the summer of 2017.

As previously reported, he recently spent three days training with the Albanian U19s squad.

Dobra joins fellow youth products Kai Brown, Brett McGavin, Idris El Mizouni and Corrie Ndaba, who have also signed their first professional contracts, while Luke Woolfenden, Teddy Bishop, Jack Lankester, Ben Morris and Harry Wright have penned further deals.

Good. The club us definitely trying to build a pathway to the first team for the academy youngsters. But we desperately need a few of them to more-or-less simultaneously become stars in a town shirt rather than break into the first team then stutter as seems to happen too often. I dream of the days when we had several players embedded in the England U21s.
