Yoann Etienne has signed a three-year professional contract to begin on 1 July 2018. Born in Paris on 19 May 1997, the oung left-sided defender arrived in the Principality in 2014. After winning the Coupe Gambardella with the U19s in May 2016, Yoann moved his way up through all of the Academy sides in his favoured position, and this season has been covering the left back position in the Nationale 2 division (playing at Fréjus on Friday at 19.00).
"I'm very happy to have signed my first professional contract with the club that has trained me. Hopefully I can repay the faith that the management have shown in me by giving me this contract. It's a new phase in my career. It's up to me to work and develop and hopefully play here with my club one day. I've had some brilliant times over the last few seasons, like the Gambardella win. There have been some more difficult moments too, but that's all part of the learning process. I'm very proud."
