FC client Mark Kitching signs professional contract

MarkKitchingFull Contact client has put pen to paper on his first professional contract, securing a two year deal at hometown club Middlesbrough FC.

Scholar Mark has continually impressed this season – starting the year starring for the Under 18’s before rising to become a key member of Boro’s Under 21 side – and the culmination of his hard work and talent was the call up by first team manager Aitor Karanka to the first team squad in recent weeks.  Mark has already featured as an unused substitute in the Championship on two occasions.

Mark has signed a two year professional contract, and Full Contact’s head of football agency Lee Payne commented “Mark’s form in the latter part of the season for the Under 21 side has, in particular, been outstanding.  He is a versatile player who can perform in a number of positions, but recently in a central midfield role he has managed to make the transition from Under 18 to Under 21 football seamlessly.  We are delighted with the progress Mark has made this year, and he deserves this contract at the club he has served all of his career to date.  I have no doubt that next year Mark will be in and around the first team squad; that is certainly the challenge for him.”
