Southampton goalkeeper Jack Bycroft says he is looking to push on after being handed a first professional contract at St Mary’s. The 17-year-old academy player has just put pen to paper on a two-year deal which ties him to the Premier League club until June 2021.
Bycroft was delighted to get a deal over the line with the south coast outfit and is now looking to keep up his recent progress by pushing for first-team appearances in the seasons to come.
“It’s a very proud day for me and my family. I’m thankful to everyone who has got me to where I am so far,” he told Southampton’s website.
“It’s just the beginning, so I’m very excited to push on.
“Being at one of the biggest clubs in the country – a Premier League side – it is an honour to step out on the pitch and wear the Southampton badge on my chest.”
