We are delighted to announce that young Arsenal professional Jernade Meade has today appointed Full Contact as his agents.
Twenty year old Jernade is a left sided defender or midfielder, and has been at Arsenal since the age of 11. Over the last two seasons Jernade established himself as a regular in Arsenal’s star-studded reserve squad, having signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2011. He has this season featured prominently in the new Premier League Under-21 competition, and is also a member of Arsenal’s UEFA Champions League squad.
Lee Payne, head of Full Contact’s player agency team, said “It is an enormous privilege for us to be asked to advise and represent Jernade. He is a wonderful young man who was born and brought up in Luton, a stone’s throw away from where I was. I have seen a lot of him playing for the Arsenal U-21 team this season, and have been very impressed with both his defensive and attacking abilities. Jernade’s career now needs to move forwards to the next level, and we look forward to playing our part in that; it is however Jernade’s undoubted ability, work ethic and tremendous attitude that will set him apart.”
Jernade Meade commented “I was introduced to Lee and Full Contact through Mark Reid, and having met with them I instantly felt comfortable that they were the right people to have in my corner, and work with me in the long term as hopefully my career progresses. Lee’s passion, advice and knowledge of football sets him apart from other agents I had met with, and I have been impressed with the whole set up of the Full Contact team.”
We look forward to working with Jernade in the months and years ahead.
