Second years Josh Southway and Pat Keary have signed one-year deals with the Pirates while first-year scholar Jamie Lucas put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

But fellow youngsters Connor Finn and Sam Kamara have been released by the League Two side.

"All the lads who have been offered their first pro contract fully deserve this massive opportunity," head of youth Tom Curtis told the club's official website.

"This is a reflection of all the hard work put in throughout the academy system, and it is great for us all to see it paying dividends.

"Connor and Sam have made fantastic contributions, and are great personalities, and we wish them well for the future."

Manager Ward joined Matt Harrold and Michael Smith in committing his future to the club last week.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
