Goalkeeper agrees professional contract with Crystal Palace

Northern Ireland Under-17 goalkeeper Ollie Webber has signed his first professional deal with Premiership outfit Crystal Palace. 

The netminder, who joined the south London club from Glentoran in the summer of 2016, has penned a one-year contract with the Eagles.

Webber, who turned 18 last Tuesday, told “It’s every kid's dream to turn professional and to do it at a Premiership club feels amazing.

“I'll continue to work hard and hopefully chances come my way.”

Although born in Portsmouth Ollie moved to Northern Ireland when he was eight years old with his mum Emma who is originally from Newtownards. 

Webber made 17 appearances for Crystal Palace’s under-18 side last term and was also a regular member of the under-23 development squad at Selhurst Park.
