Ethan Brierley Signs First Professional Contract

26 November 2020

Rochdale AFC are delighted to announce that Ethan Brierley has signed his first professional contract with the Club.

He has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at the Crown Oil Arena.

Brierley, who turned 17 earlier this week, has played for the Rochdale Academy since the age of seven.

He signed as a scholar this summer and has already made five appearances for the first-team, including starting all of Dale’s EFL Trophy matches.

On signing professional terms, Brierly said: “It’s all I’ve ever wanted since I was three-years-old.

“I’m over the moon to have the chance to play out there and to finally be a professional footballer is great.

“I’ve been here since I was six or seven, training every Tuesday and Thursday in the evening [for the Academy] and it has all been worth it.

“From watching some of the players as a fan, to playing with them, is just unreal.

“I’ve enjoyed playing in all of the games for the first-team so far. I think I’ve done well and all of my teammates have been great with me.

“I can’t wait for the next three years!”

Congratulations, Ethan!
