ROTHERHAM United youngster Reece McGinley has put pen-to-paper on his first professional deal, signing a one-year contract at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

The 18-year-old joined the Millers Academy ranks in 2016 and has impressed both youth and first team staff with his showings in the Central League and Youth Alliance fixtures over the course of the last two seasons.
