Southampton Football Club has handed three Academy youngsters their first professional contracts.

The trio, all 17, have put pen to paper on three-year deals, which will keep them at the club until June 2021.

Forward Enzo Robise enjoyed an impressive maiden season in the Under-18s set-up last term, scoring seven times, having joined Saints from his native French club Reims in 2017.

Irish pairing Kameron Ledwidge and Sean Brennan also made the switch to the south coast in 2017, and have been rewarded with their first pro deals off the back of equally successful debut seasons for Saints' Under-18s.

Academy Manager, Matt Hale commented: “Enzo, Kameron and Sean are talented young players with huge potential.

"Being rewarded with a professional contract shows the faith we have in them and our programme to fulfil that potential.

"It is also a reflection of the recruitment footprint we now have and the reputation the academy holds, in terms of attracting international youth players from across Europe.

"We look forward to seeing how Enzo, Kameron and Sean progress over the coming months.”
