Crewe Alexandra have signed teenage duo Perry Ng and Fraser Murdoch on first professional contracts.
It means defender Ng, 17, and Scotland Under-19 striker Murdoch, 18, remain at Gresty Road until at least the summer of 2016.
The pair are the first of six scholars offered deals to commit their immediate futures to the Railwaymen.
Ng was part of the club’s Under-21 success this term and Murdoch involved with the first-team squad during pre-season.
