Rochdale AFC are delighted to announce that Brad Wade has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The 18-year-old has put pen to paper on a one-year deal, with the option of a further year.
The goalkeeper has been with the club since the age of 15, playing in three FA Youth Cup campaigns, and was a key member of the Youth Team as they lifted the EFL Youth Alliance League North West title last season.
Speaking after putting pen to paper, Wade said: “I’m delighted. I’ve been here three years now, so all the hard work I’ve put in in the Academy and in my scholarship over the two years has all paid off.
“I feel like I’ve really improved over the seasons I’ve been here. We [the Youth Team] have had a great year this year winning the league.
“I know the standards that are expected, so I know where I’ve got to be and what I need to do, and I’ve been working hard over the off-season to make sure I’m ready to go come pre-season.”
