Congratulations to young Joe Ralls who becomes a first year professional with Cardiff City.

On Thursday he signed a professional contract with Cardiff City before flying to Hull on Friday with the squad for today's game.

And Malky Mackay has named the 17 year old on the bench for the clash against the Tigers.

Speaking to the press on Friday Mackay said:

"We're delighted to have tied another one of our youngsters up to the Club. Joe is a promising player who sees his future at Cardiff City.

"I've been very impressed with Joe during the time we've seen him, so much so that we involved him in the early rounds of the Carling Cup. He's got a good attitude and wants to learn quickly - to that end we've secured him.

"I had a good chat with him and his family yesterday and Joe will be travelling with us up to Hull today."
