Declan Dunn pens Notts County contract


Teenage defender Declan Dunn has signed his first professional contract with Notts County.

The 18-year-old made his senior debut for the Magpies in the 4-0 FA Cup first round defeat away at Barnsley and has been a regular in reserve fixtures this term.

Dunn joined the Notts academy at Under-10s level and spoke proudly of the latest development in his fledgling career.

“I came in after the Barnsley match and Paul asked me to come into the office and told me I was being offered a contract,” Dunn told the club website.

“It’s a massive weight lifted off my shoulders because it’s something I’ve wanted for a long time and I’ve worked hard for it.

“I’m happy that I’ve been showing enough and now I need to keep pushing in reserve games and getting as much first team-action as I can.

“It’s a really good thing for myself and my family.

“I’ve been here for eight or nine years so I’ve seen a lot of coaches come and go but the staff and the players around me have always made me want to push hard to improve.

“I’ve played at Meadow Lane in the FA Youth Cup but not for the first team so that’s my aim for the rest of this season.”
