Budding Ghanaian midfielder Tarelll Agyemang has signed his first-ever professional contract with Charlton Athletic, Sportsworldghana.com.can exclusively confirm.
The younger brother of Margate midfielder Montel Agyemang has been handed his first professional contract following his impressive display with the Academy team.
“I am happy that the majority have either been offered a new contract or were retained within their option, so that’s all been tidied up. Then we’ve got 10 existing scholars that are going to go into that first-year pro group,” said Academy manager Steve Avory.
“We already had Charlie Barker, Euan Williams and Aaron Henry on professional contracts, and now have Naz Bakrin, Jimmy Appiah, Jeremy Santos, Richard Chin, Terrell Agyemang, Dylan Gavin and Mason Burstow. So there’s actually 12 first year professionals – I think it’s the highest number of first year professionals we’ve ever had. It’s going to be a young U23 group but we feel lots of potential there, an exciting group.
“I reflect back on the two years and these individuals have been a significant part of the success of the U18s in this past season. What I feel we’ve got there is individuals who are dedicated, they listen, they’re coachable.
“I feel they’re quite strong, the majority of them in terms of the resilience side of the game, which is needed on a day-to-day basis. Above all else, because this is important, I see individuals who enjoy every day here at Charlton. They love the game. It sounds an obvious thing to state, but I’m keen on observing that in young players that they do enjoy their day-to-day work.” he concluded.
