Well, it’s good to know that some part of the club’s future is pretty secure.
The club announced yesterday that young forward Josh Andrews had signed a new deal at the club, with him now being tied down until the summer of 2022, with the option of another year on top. The 18-year-old is already a bit of a force for his age, standing at 6’3 with the club describing him as the ‘focal point of the attack because of his size’.
And it’s that height that has brought comparisons with a former big man that used to play up front for us.

But whilst his long-term future seems to be secure, there were some fans who wanted to see him a lot sooner, perhaps even this Saturday against Fulham.
Are you concerned with the amount of young players on the bench?
Given that we’ve seen plenty of academy players on the bench so far since the restart, it wouldn’t totally be out of the realms of possibility.
Cannot be any worse then Harlee Dean
