Academy | Three New Pros Sign
Cardiff City Football Club are delighted to announce that three players from the Academy have now signed professional contracts.
Kieron Evans, Rubin Colwill and Isaak Davies have put pen-to-paper on new deals that will see them link up with Steve Morison’s U23 squad for the 2020/21 season.
All three of our new professionals progressed through Cardiff City's Academy system from a young age.
Kieron is a creative, athletic and tricky midfielder, capable of playing in several different roles effectively. He initially joined the Academy at the U10 age group.
Rubin has also been at the Academy since the age of eight. An attacking midfielder with good physical potential, Rubin adds a creative edge to the attacking line-up.
Isaak is a longstanding member of the Academy, having joined at the age of seven. A dangerous forward, Isaak has been a key part of the U18 & U23 sides across the last two season.
In January 2020, Joel Bagan and Ntazana Mayembe also signed professional contracts. Now 18, Bagan will make the step up to U23 level permanently, while the 17 year-old Mayembe is still eligible to make appearances for our U18 side for another season.
Young full-back Joel signed his professional contract in early 2020 - and made his debut for Neil Harris’ first team against Reading in the FA Cup Fourth Round replay before finishing the 2019/20 season on-loan at National League side Notts County.
‘Taz’ is a quick and explosive attacking player. He linked up with our Academy sides for the first time at the age of nine. Mayembe signed his first professional deal on January 28th 2020 - and was an unused substitute for the first team during their league match with West Bromwich Albion that same day.
