Young Jake signs first City contract

By Ian Appleyard | 1st May 2019

Centreback Jake Watson has today signed his first professional contract after graduating from the club's Academy.

Scarborough-born Watson, 18, has been a regular at the heart of the Under-19s defence this season and was a second half substitute in City's North Riding Senior Cup tie at Northallerton Town in November 2018.

Manager Steve Watson (no relation) said: "Jake is highly thought of. He's a proper centre-half and a good lad who will definitely benefit from being full-time. I am looking forward to welcoming him in with the rest of the lads come pre-season."
