Whilst we still look for someone to take control of us in the present, at least the club’s still taking steps to ensure the future is safe.
There was of course the news back in May that a number of academy products had been offered to some of the ‘rising stars’ at the club, and now two more young products have put their name on the dotted line.
The club announced yesterday that Mitch Roberts and Kane Thompson-Sommers have both signed two-year deals at the club, keeping them in royal blue until the summer of 2022. Roberts was of course one of my names when it came to players to look out for in 2020/21 at St Andrew’s, and it will be interesting to see if the new boss has as much faith in the youth as I do.
Will any young players see first-team action next season?
And whilst there was some congratulations to be had for the young men on social media, there were a few fans who had their minds on other things, and they let their feelings be known.
Well done lads. Hope you you kick on and go on to be first team players in the future. It's obviously a big moment for you to sign these contracts. Ignore some of the comments on here, it's just fans annoyed and frustrated at the club, no reflection on you and your achievement
