Ex Easington Academy student, Luca Stephenson, has signed his first professional football contract with Liverpool Football Club.
Luca, who turned 17 last week, joined the Academy in 2015 and left at the end of Year 9 when he joined Liverpool's U15 level from Sunderland AFC's Academy. After a couple of successful years at Liverpool's Academy, he made his debut for the club last year while playing for the U18 squad.
Congratulations, Luca! We wish you the best of luck with your football career.
