Yeovil Town have given a first professional contract to Academy full-back Daniel Ojo. The defender becomes the second player to be signed on professional terms, with Gabriel Rogers having been given a contract yesterday. Like Rogers, he has been given a deal that lasts until June 2021 - a two-and-a-half year term.
Ojo has made one appearance for the first team so far, starting in the EFL Trophy Group Stage match against West Ham United Under-21s, but has sat on the bench on three other occasions, with the September match at Crawley Town representing the one time he was named on a League Two teamsheet.
He is a former Charlton Athletic Academy player who was brought into the club eighteen months ago, as part of their scholarship programme. He generally plays as a left-back in the Under-18s side. Daniel has said of his new deal:
""It's an honour for me to sign a professional contract and I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue improving. I've loved my time so far at Yeovil and this is the next step in the journey for me. The gaffer has been great with me and it's time now to repay the faith. I've got to keep working hard every day and hopefully, get as much game time as possible."
The best of luck to him and Gabriel over the coming two-and-a-half years.
