Mariners sign Fleetwood defender…
Marine AFC are pleased to announce the loan signing of central defender Will Johnson from Fleetwood Town.
Will, 18, signed his first professional contract with the Lancashire club in November and is the current U18 captain.
At the time of signing Fleetwood Head of Academy Jack Higgins said:
“We are absolutely delighted to offer Will professional terms. He epitomises everything that we as an Academy are all about. We look for good people as well as good players and for Will, he’s just a fantastic young person who puts absolutely everything into everything he does.
“On and off the pitch, Will represents himself and his family well and he’s a leader. He strives to be the best version of himself every single day. He’s currently studying his Maths A Level so is balancing that hard work with the work on the pitch, as well as being the captain of the Under-18s.
“We are delighted to extend Will’s journey with us and can’t wait to see him step up into the Under-23s and hopefully push for a first-team place in the near future.”
He joins the Mariners until the end of the season and is eligible to make his debut in tomorrow’s Northern Premier League fixture at Atherton Collieries.
