Middlesbrough have handed professional contracts to seven of the club's youngsters.

Second-year academy apprentices Adam Reach, who scored on his senior debut against Doncaster this month, Ryan Brobbel and Charlie Wyke, together with first-year apprentices Jake Fowler, Adam Jackson and Curtis Edwards, have signed deals which will run from July 1 to the summer of 2014.

In addition, third-year apprentice Kyle Oliver has been given a two-year contract which will take him through to 2013, and 18-year-old former Everton player Luke Dobie has put pen to paper on a one-year professional contract after a successful trial.

Academy manager Dave Parnaby told the club's official website: "After doing so well on his first team debut, Adam (Reach) is naturally a hot topic at the moment and I am so pleased for him because he is a very modest boy.

"He joined us a year later than the other boys of his age, but I have to say that Gateshead College deserve a lot of credit for helping to bring him through."
