Dominic Corness signs first professional contract at Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder Dominic Corness has committed his long-term future to the club having put pen-to-paper on his first professional contract.

Corness, 17, has been with the Academy since the age of five and broke onto the scene with the under-18’s last term.

Renowned for his his qualities in central midfield, Corness has continued his progression this season under Marc Bridge-Wilkinson.

He has clocked up 12 appearances in the U18s Premier League North, with the young Reds gridlocked in an exciting title battle with Manchester United.

The England youth international has a wand of a left-foot, which came into deadly effect during the inaugural match of the 2020/21 campaign against Stoke City, where he remarkably scored twice directly from corners.
