Marquis deal

30 January 2014

Striker signs new contract

Striker John Marquis has put pen to paper on a new one year deal that will keep him at The Den until the summer of 2015.

The 21-year-old front man's first team opportunities have been limited so far this season, and he has been out on loan to Portsmouth and Torquay United. But new Lions Boss Ian Holloway believes John has a real future at The Den and has included him amongst the substitutes in the three games since he took charge.

John said: "My season really hasn't got going yet, although I got some game time and scored a few goals during my loan spells. The new gaffer has shown real faith in me since he arrived, and now with my injury niggles behind me I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.

It has really been exciting here since Ian Holloway came to the club, and the fact that he obviously believes in me is a real boost. I know I may have to wait for my chance to break into the team but I'm determined to keep working hard and grab the opportunity when it comes."
