Aston Villa academy’s Lamare Bogarde has signed his first professional contract just a matter of days after making his senior debut against Liverpool.

The 17-year-old was a member of the youngest side in the club’s history as they took on the Premier League champions in the FA Cup 3rd round on Friday night after coronavirus ruled out the entire first team.

“Lamare joined us in the summer and since then we have been pleased with his development,” academy manager Mark Harrison told

He continued:

“His development has seen him play a number of times for our under-23s at the age of 16.”
