The Frost Report: Pro-Deal for Jamie!

17 year old youth striker, Jamie Frost (pictured above) earned himself his first professional contract at the club this week following his impressive form. He has signed a two-and-a-half year deal until June 2016 (subject to Football League and FA clearance). The Macclesfield-born youngster is still only a first-year scholar but has already caught the eye of his country having recently been called up to the Scotland U18 squad. Frost has been a regular in the youth team this season and has travelled with the first team on several occasions gaining valuable experience. He is clearly one for the future with big things expected of him.

Manager Sean Dyche said:

"There are a group of players who we see as pushing forward to be the future of the club and Jamie is one of them, so we look forward to seeing him progress."

Academy Manager Jason Blake added:

"Jamie demonstrates there is no hierarchy.

"If we have a first year scholar who is performing well and progressing the way we hope, then they will get acknowledged.

"It`s not fast-tracking; it`s getting what they deserve. Jamie has worked had and been recognised by the Scotland set-up, playing above his age level, and he has done the same with us here at Burnley.

"He is part of our development pathway and has spent time training with the first team, and playing for the youth team.

"The key thing is he is managed very closely between the Academy and first team staff, so this is no coincidence.

"It is methodical and deliberate and his new professional contract is a signal of how far he has come in a short space of time, bearing in mind he played a lot of youth team football last season while still an U16.

"He is a great example, both to the other Academy scholars and also next year`s intake and the schoolboy groups underneath, that if you work hard age is no barrier and you will get recognised on performance, not date of birth."
