Youth-team captain Josh Rogerson is the latest youngster signing a first professional contract with hometown club York City.

The eighteen-year-old former Huntington schoolboy therefore follows young midfielder Harry Thompson in being rewarded for his recent elevation into the reserve side.

“It’s my first professional contract and it’s always been a dream,” Rogerson told York’s official YouTube channel. “It’s all I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid, so it was quite an easy decision.

“I think I’ve improved since the start of my scholarship and have really developed over the years,” he continued. “I think I’m good at reading the game defensively, is my strong point.

“I want to try and push for the first-team next season and try help them to promotion if I’m a regular starter.”

Meanwhile, the Minstermen have also offered terms to young striker Flynn McNaughton, who has recently graduated towards their senior team while making four substitute appearances last term.
