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.

Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
