Chadwick signs new contract

27 November 2020

Young forward Billy Chadwick has signed a new contract that will keep him at Hull City until the summer of 2022, with a Club option of a further year.

The 20-year-old has risen through the ranks since joining his hometown club at Under-12s level, making three first-team appearances this season.

The Hull-born attacker made his senior debut as a substitute in the EFL Trophy match against Leicester City U21s in September, providing an assist with a delightful cross.

He converted a spot-kick in the Carabao Cup penalty shootout victory over Leeds United and also featured in the Trophy win at Harrogate Town.

“We love him,” said Head Coach Grant McCann. “The coaching staff love him, the players love him.

“He’s been involved in and around our first-team squad this season. If he’s not on the bench, he’s travelling with the group.

“He’s been around the Papa John’s Trophy games and come on.

“He’s a really good kid, low maintenance, wants to work, loves it at Hull. This is his club and he’s come through the system.

“He can play numerous positions in the frontline – off the left, off the right, as a nine.

“He’s an unbelievable kid who just wants to learn, wants to get better. He will get better and he is getting better.

“We’re delighted to tie him down.”
