Eighteen year old Kyle Brooks got his biggest football award to date by earning himself his first Professional Contract with his local club Bacup Borough, Kyle who resides in Weir a little village one mile away from the ground has progressed through Bacup Borough’s own Youth Policy having progressed under Andrew Walker & Darren Reece under the watchful eye of Bacup Borough Manager Brent Peters, Kyle had impressed so much that following the last few games of the Senior Team’s  2017/18 football season, Manager Brent Peters stepped him up into the first from which he did not disappoint, this then prompted the Bacup Borough Manager to run with Kyle in the Senior side from the start of the 2018/19 football season, once again not disappointing he was actually selected for 32 games, second best overhaul appearance with Captain Adrian Bellamy on 43, this has earned Kyle with a twelve month deal with an option for a further twelve months.

Manager Brent Peters had this to say “ Having watched Kyle on a regular basis within our Youth Structure he immediately struck me has a level headed boy that was very much hungry to progress in the game, it is one thing having the hunger and desire but Kyle has the ability to go with those attributes, Peters added “ the fact that he started in thirty two games last season speaks volumes on how well the boy is developing, Peters went on to say “ the reason for the contract is reward Kyle on how well Kyle has progressed to date but, it is also to enable the boy to continue his development in an environment where he is relaxed & comfortable and where he has that arena to express himself, Peters added “ this is not because he is the real deal, Kyle is by no means the real deal yet, but believe me he will be, this is providing that he is given that opportunity to continue, here at Bacup he most certainly has that arena, the Head Coach to whom Kyle will be working with is a former International footballer himself, Dave Felgate, to whom also had fourteen years at Manchester City, & his currently working with Liverpool Football Club, Peters added “ When you give young players a chance at our level of the game and they get through the amount of games that Kyle has managed, this obviously will get other Non League Managers looking at him with a view for him to play in their first team but in majority of cases, this is where it ends, they stop their development to use them as a footballer to play at their first team level, I was mindful of this situation hence why one of the reasons was to place this deal onto the table, for one he does not need to get involved with that side of the politics of our game by the fact his head gets messed up of whether he stays or goes and two it is security for him knowing that he can fully concentrate on furthering his development, Peters finished by saying “ The only way I don’t see Kyle Brooks being a future Bacup Borough Captain is because he has furthered his development, he has caught the eye of a football league club from which he will then be taking a positive step in another direction, this is exactly what we are working too, not only with Kyle but there will be some more following”
