Young defender Daniel Ballard has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The 18-year-old is a product of our Hale End academy and signed as a scholar in August 2016.
He played for our under-23s and under-18s last season, and captained the squad that reached the FA Youth Cup final. He is a Northern Ireland youth international.
We would like to congratulate Daniel on his new contract and wish him well as he continues his development at the club.
