Young pair join the Blues

2 July 2014

Blues have completed the signing of talented young goalkeeper Alex Lynch on a free transfer following his release from League 1 outfit Peterborough United.

The 19-year-old has represented Wales at under-19 level and spent time on loan with Stamford AFC, and arrives at Adams Park on a two-year deal to develop his career under goalkeeping coach Barry Richardson, with whom he worked at the Posh.

Richardson said: “I’ve known Alex since he was a 16-year-old and I’m really pleased to be working with him again.

“He is another young keeper to add to the two we already have, and he has played for his country, so he’ll be a great addition to the squad.”

Meanwhile, Wanderers can confirm that winger Nathan Evans has signed his first professional deal after being selected by Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth from the Samsung ‘Win A Pro Contract’ competition.

Evans, 19, of Grangetown, Middlesbrough, beat more than 5,700 entrants to win the life-changing playing contract, having spent last season in non-league with Whitby Town.

He said: “It feels great to have won. I always believed I could win. If you don’t believe you can win there is no point in entering the competition.

“This is the first step on the football ladder for me. I’m not the finished article yet. I have a long way to go and there is a lot in my game to improve on.”

Ainsworth said: “Nathan showed some fantastic technical ability. He also looked comfortable within the squad environment, which can be daunting for any new player, never mind a 19-year-old on trial.

“I am looking forward to working with Nathan. He has seized this chance with both hands.”

Nathan has agreed a one-year contract with the club.
