Terry Butcher confirmed today (Friday) that local lads, Liam Polworth and Ryan Christie, will take a step up next season having put pen to paper on new 2 year deals.
Terry announced that "Ryan Christie (son of Charlie) and Liam Polworth, (son of Iain) have signed two year deals."
"We've been very encouraged by their progress this year. Ryan is a year younger than Liam, and if he can follow in his footsteps then he has got a very, very bright future...they're both local boys and great lads."
"Liam has been on the bench a lot this season and has improved enormously, whilst Ryan has been in the U20's a lot and will now progress to the first team. He (Ryan) brings something different than Liam to the squad as he is a more offensive, left footed player who can also play behind the strikers, a very exciting propspect."
"We're absolutely delighted that two local boys have signed up. It shows that there's hope for young players in Inverness and surrounding areas who will be given a chance to come on board and do well."
