Jon McCracken signs new contract with the Canaries

21 December 2020

Norwich City academy goalkeeper Jon McCracken has signed a contract extension with the club, keeping him with the Canaries until the summer of 2022.

McCracken has featured prominently for David Wright’s Under-23s side this season, who are fifth in Premier League 2 Division 2 with one of the best defensive records in the league.

The 20-year-old has progressed through the ranks at Norwich after signing for the club in July of 2016 and has gone on to represent Scotland at Under-17s level.

Discussing his contract extension, McCracken said: “It feels good to get it done and I’m looking forward to cracking on.

“I’ve been at the club now for four years and I’ve developed as a person and a player, so it’s been good progress. Hopefully, there’s more to come.

“Since the boss came in, there have been loads of players that have made it through, so it’s only a positive that the club is willing to give youth players chances. You’ve just got to make sure you’re ready to take it when it comes.”

Academy head of football development, Steve Weaver, added: “Jon has been a reliable member of the development squad over recent years and he's shown his worth to us with some great performances this season.

"We're looking forward to seeing how he develops with us over the next 18 months."
