Since joining Wimbledon as a nine-year-old Reece has made significant progress and AFC Wimbledon are delighted to have tied down his services for the next four years.
Jeremy Sauer, AFC Wimbledon Academy’s Head of Coaching, said: “This is effectively a four-year contract as it guarantees Reece two years before he moves up to the Under-18s and then he will play at that level for another two years.
“Reece started at the club in the Under-10s C team when I was manager of that section and we are proud to have brought him through. He has already moved up to the Under-15s this season and he has shown that physically and mentally he is at the right level. Reece is the youngest player to have signed a scholarship agreement at AFC Wimbledon and it is great that he has committed to the club."
