“It’s been a really crucial season for young players here. Frank, Jody Morris and Joe Edwards have taken us on board and really committed themselves to bringing young players through.
“It’s been really important to have those familiar faces around. It’s easy to talk to people and be around the first team building more because you’re welcomed in.
“Hopefully I can try to carry on being a part of that as long as I keep working hard and impressing the coaches.”
“I’ve been at the club since I was six years old so to get to this stage and then be offered another five-year contract on top of that is amazing.
“I had no hesitation but to take it straight away because to play for the club I always dreamed of playing for is really special for me.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
