Manchester United youngster Elyh Harrison has signed his first ever professional contract with the club.

United signed Elyh Harrison last summer from Stevenage Town’s academy. At 16, he signed a scholarship deal.

Now posting on Instagram, Harrison has confirmed that he has put pen to paper on professional terms with Manchester United.

The young goalkeeper turned 17 last month. He has been a regular for United’s under-18s side.

Elyh Harrison impressing in first season

Elyh Harrison has had a bright start for Manchester United’s under-18s side since joining.

With Radek Vitek moving up to the under-21s, Harrison has been competing with Tom Wooster and Eric Hanbury for game time.

Harrison was selected to start both FA Youth Cup games earlier this year and caught the eye with his strong handling skills.

Harrison has played almost 1,000 minutes for the under-18s across 11 matches, and has looked very assured so far.

Making it all the way through to become Manchester United’s number one is a tall order, but that’s the dream, and this is an important step at the start of his journey.

United will give him all the support he needs to help him try and reach the top.
