Under 19s forward Luther Munakandafa has today signed a professional contract at Meadow Lane.
The 18-year-old joined our youth set-up last summer and immediately made his mark, earning himself the opportunity to train regularly with the first team throughout the 2021-22 campaign.
His performances in those sessions, coupled with his form for the Under 19s, impressed our first-team coaching staff and our board of directors are delighted to offer him the chance to go pro.
A statement reads: “As evidenced by our determination to continue the operation of our academy despite the loss of grant funding last summer, we, like our supporters, are very keen to see the club continue to develop players through the age groups and into the first team.
“Luther has demonstrated exceptional talent and application in his time at the club so far and sets the benchmark for other young players at the club.
“We congratulate him on this achievement and look forward to watching him progress further in 2022-23.”
