The club can today announce that defender Dylan Corr has signed a 1 year pre – contract with Raith Rovers, and will complete the move upon completion of his contract with Celtic.
A 19 year old centre back, Dylan was first signed by Celtic as a 7 year old, and has worked his way through the age groups of the Celtic academy, playing for the Youth, Under 18 and ‘B’ teams since signing as a professional.
In the 2022-23 season Dylan made 34 appearances for the Celtic ‘B’ team in the Scottish Lowland Football League (where he became acclimatised to playing men’s football), the SPFL Challenge Cup and the UEFA Youth League (testing himself against Elite Youth footballers from the top leagues in Europe in games v Real Madrid, Shakhtar and Red Bull Leipzig, playing the full 90+ minutes in each match in that competition).
Rovers manager Ian Murray has been monitoring Dylan’s progress throughout the past season, and is delighted that Rovers got ahead of several full-time clubs (who were also keen on the player) in securing the services of the young defender.
The Rovers manager spoke exclusively to www.raithrovers.net about Dylan and said:
“I’m really glad Dylan has agreed to sign on with us.
He is a good young centre – half who we have been discussing for some time.
Dylan has come from a good grounding in football, and we look forward to working with him and progressing his career”
Welcome Aboard Dylan!
