Millwall duo Philpot and Farrell sign new deals

23 May 2016

Young prospects pledge future to The Lions

Millwall striker Jamie Philpot and midfielder Kyron Farrell have both penned new contracts at The Den, pledging their immediate futures to the club until 2018 and 2017 respectively.

Philpot, 19, wrote himself into the club's history books when he scored a goal at Wolves with his first touch in senior football on the final day of the 2015/16 campaign.

The Academy prospect has been on the fringes of the first team since, and made six appearances as a substitute this season.

Fellow Academy graduate Farrell, 18, has been a lynchpin for Millwall's U21s in a year that saw Justin Skinner's charges reach the Elite Professional Development League Play-Offs.

Speaking to Jamie said: "It's nice to put pen to paper and secure my future with Millwall for another two years. I love playing for this club and I am glad that the manager has shown faith in me so far in my career.

"I've got to repay him for his belief by continuing my progress and trying to make the most of any opportunities that I get in the first team next season and beyond."

Kyron added: "I've been in and around the senior squad a lot this season, especially in recent weeks and my aim is to try and get some minutes with the first team next season.

"I have really enjoyed working with a great set of coaching staff who have helped to improve me as a player. Hopefully I can continue to get better playing for Millwall."
