Wood agrees contract extension

5 May 2015

Defender Keaton pens new deal and relishing challenge ahead

Keaton Wood has today signed a new one-year deal at Millwall - and insists that the new season can't come quickly enough!

Defender Keaton, 19, has seen fellow Academy graduates Jack Powell, Sid Nelson, Jamie Philpot, Alfie Pavey and Aiden O'Brien, to name just a few, appear for The Lions this season.

Having spent the latter part of the 2014/15 campaign on loan at Billericay, Keaton is champing at the bit to progress through to the first team at The Den.

"I went on loan at the end of the season to Billericay and it was a different experience to playing for the U21s," he said. "It's all about having a decent challenge - and that's what I have here.

"I thought getting my first year pro was quite tough, even getting my scholar was quite tough, but to get this one I feel really privileged to even be considered. Not many people get this. I have worked so hard to get here,  but that doesn't mean I can stop. I am only 19-years-old and have still got so much to learn.

"It's good to see so many boys pushing through to the first team; Sid, Powelly, Jamie scoring his goal at the weekend, Aiden and Alfie. It's exciting times and hopefully I'm looking to push on myself next season."
