Trio offered pro deals

Lions reward young prospects

Millwall have offered pro contracts to exciting Academy prospects Sid Nelson, Keaton Wood and Ben Thompson.

The trio, who have all featured regularly for Millwall's U18s and U21s this season, were praised by Academy Director Scott Fitzgerald for their application and development.

He said: "It is obviously exciting for the three lads to take this next big step in their careers, but also exciting for myself and everyone connected with the Academy to see another group of talented youngsters progressing at Millwall.

Having seen Fred Onyedinma make an impressive full debut against Charlton last weekend, Jack Powell and Denzel Gerrar feature in the first team squad on a number of occasions recently and Sid himself also having had a taste of it, the signs are very promising indeed that we might see a group of home grown youngsters coming through and establishing themselves together.

As I often say, these lads have only taken the first step on the ladder. They have plenty of hard work ahead of them and it's up to them to grab their opportunity with both hands."
