Talented Goalkeeper Signs First Pro Deal

Talented goalkeeper Harry Tyrer has signed a first professional contract with Everton and declared his pride after committing his future to the Club he’s supported all his life.

The 18-year-old stopper has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal until the end of June 2022.

Crosby-born Tyrer has been with Everton since the age of seven.

He is enjoying his maiden season with Everton Under-23s, having been promoted from Paul Tait’s Under-18 side. The commanding goalkeeper – who turned 18 in December – has gone on to produce a string of impressive displays for David Unsworth’s team.

Tyrer detailed how the support, encouragement and expert coaching he has received during his time at the Club has been key to his progress.

“It means the world to sign this contract,” he told evertonfc.com.

“I’ve supported Everton all my life, so I’m very proud. Everyone in my family is a Blue and it means a lot to them, too. It’s fantastic and I’m so happy.

“The Club has so much history. There is nowhere else I’d want to be and it feels like home.

“From a young age, the coaches at Everton Academy have so much passion to help you improve, enjoy your football and win. That continues all the way up the age groups.

“It’s like one big family at Everton, everybody around the Club is so friendly. Nothing beats it.”

Tyrer has started nine Premier League 2 matches for Everton Under-23s this season and also played every game as the young Blues reached the knockout stages of the Leasing.com Trophy for the first time.

The teenager set out his resolve to continue developing and explained why he believes he is at the perfect club to fulfil his potential.

“The hard work continues,” Tyrer added. “This club has helped me grow and become the player I am today.

“I owe credit to all of the coaching staff at the Club, they have been brilliant for me.

“Long-term, it would be a dream to walk out at Goodison to Z Cars for the first team – that’s something I’ve dreamt about since I was a kid. At the moment, I just want to play as many games as I can for the Under-23s and keep progressing.”
