Goalkeeper Aymen Azaze has today signed his first professional contract with Barnet Football Club.
Azaze, who also celebrates his 17th birthday today, has impressed in between the sticks for the Under 18 side this season.
He has also been involved in the First Team setup, including being in the matchday squad on two occasions.
On signing his first ever professional contract, Azaze has said:
"It's a good feeling, I've been working very hard for it and now I can just push on, work even harder with the first team boys and aim for opportunities with the squad.
"It's a really nice to have the Club believe in me. To train with the First Team has been great, John Still has been brilliant with me, hopefully, I can now pay back his trust."
Bees manager John Still added:
"Aymen has trained with our first team goalkeepers all season, whenever he has worked with us, he has always looked more than capable.
"We would be very disappointed if we didn't get the opportunity to work with him more in the future and I'm very happy he has signed professionally."
