YOUNGSTER PENS A NEW DEAL WITH THE BREWERS

21 July 2015

LIAM Slade has signed a new one-year deal with Burton Albion.

After coming through Burton Albion's youth system, Slade signed a professional contract in July 2013. In November 2013, Slade joined Redditch United on a one-month loan deal.

Slade made his debut for Burton Albion in a 3-1 away loss to Bury on 20 September 2014 in League Two.

Slade made seven appearances for the Brewer last season including four victories.

Mike Whitlow, Head of academy said “It is fantastic to see Liam rewarded with a new contract. He has worked hard with the first team and has a long way to go in his development and be pushing for a place in the starting 11.

“Liam has a really good two years when he was with the academy and it is always pleasing to see a youth product work his way up to the first team.

“He still has a lot to learn as a young defender and I’m sure he will want to be impressing Jimmy and David over the next season.”
