Everton Under-23s goalkeeper Harry Tyrer has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The 18-year-old stopper, who joined the Blues a seven-year-old, was promoted to David Unsworth's team from the Under-18s this season and there is hope that he has a big future ahead of him.
Crosby-born Tyrer told evertonfc.com of his delight to sign pro forms and a deal that would run until June 2022 with his boyhood club:
“It means the world to sign this contract. I've supported Everton all my life, so I'm very proud. Everyone in my family is a Blue and it means a lot to them, too. It's fantastic and I'm so happy.
“The hard work continues. This club has helped me grow and become the player I am today. I owe credit to all of the coaching staff at the Club, they have been brilliant for me.
“Long-term, it would be a dream to walk out at Goodison to Z Cars for the first team – that's something I've dreamt about since I was a kid. At the moment, I just want to play as many games as I can for the Under-23s and keep progressing.”

Guess he won't be punching out crosses with those, will he?

ps: Niasse makes Rod Belfitt look like Platinni.

I think the last home-grown goalie to make it for us was Andy Rankin so we are due another.

Joking aside, best of luck to Harry, keep up the hard graft.
