Linfield Football Club are delighted to announce that Rhys Annett and Ryan McKay, both 18 years of age, have signed their first professional contracts with the club which will take effect when the transfer window opens on Wednesday.
David Healy commented:
"I'm delighted to advise our supporters that Rhys Annett and Ryan McKay have today signed their first professional contracts which will take effect when the transfer window opens on Wednesday.
The two 18-year-olds joined Linfield from Dundela in January and both have today agreed two-year contracts.
Both players made their first team debuts towards the end of last season and they've made a positive impression within the squad since they joined the club. They have earned these well deserved professional contracts.
I expect that both Rhys and Ryan will make a significant contribution to the club during the course of the contract they've agreed today and they are highly promising players who I believe in time, will develop into leading players within the squad.
Both players signed their contracts at the end of our first day back in pre-season training and they, along with all the other players and staff, are looking forward to continuing our preparations, as we build up towards the start of our European and domestic campaigns.”
