The 18-year-old winger has been rewarded for an impressive debut season in the U's first team.

"Doing well enough to earn a new contract is something I'd hoped for as soon as I got my first deal," he told the club website.

"I knew at that point I hadn't achieved anything yet, so it's good to know that after a good season, I've done enough to get this contract.

"I learned a lot from being in dressing rooms on highs and lows and we're all stronger for it now.

"The experience will do me well for the future, and now I just want to play more and score more goals for the team."

Yes, thats what the kaleidoscopic whirlwind of highs and lows feels like supporting the Tractor Boys. In other exciting news I saw two, count them, TWO squirrels today. What a start to August.
