AFC Fylde academy graduate Jack Byrne has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The central defender has signed a one-year deal. Byrne played an integral role in the Under-18s’ 2019/20 Lancashire County Cup triumph, in which he formed a solid defensive partnership alongside James Stanley.
Conrad Prendergast, AFC Fylde’s youth team manager, told afcfylde.co.uk: “I am made up for Jack. He’s worked tirelessly to improve his game over the last couple of years, and his performances with us were always top notch.
“He has set the bar now for all of my players, along with James [Stanley], Sheldon [Green] and Serhat Tasdemir, who we sold to Peterborough last year.”
