Dylan Parker signs first professional contract!

3 July 2018

Young striker Dylan Parker has signed his first professional contract with the Saddlers.

The 18-year-old joined the club from FC Stratford last October and scored twice on his Youth Team debut against Bury after coming on as a half-time substitute.

He plundered 11 goals in 20 appearances for the Under-18s and also netted one in two outings for the Development Squad.

“It’s such a relief to be at the club and playing with some great players,” said Parker.

“I joined in October so I only had six months at Under-18s. I really enjoyed it and it was a massive step up coming into a professional academy.

“It’s another step up now and the intensity has gone up a lot, but I feel I’m doing alright with it.

“I’m really glad to finally be a professional.”
