THE Brewers have taken up the option to extend Callum Hawkins’ contract until the summer of 2020.
The Academy graduate is yet to make a first team appearance for the Brewers, but has been on the bench for the last two League One fixtures.
The goalkeeper spent time out on-loan at Mickleover Sports earlier this season, gaining valuable match experience during a two-month spell.
The club have taken up the option to keep Hawkins for another season, as he continues to develop as a player.
The youngster is delighted to be staying with the Brewers for another season and hopes to kick on.
He said: “I am over the moon to get another year. I have been working hard all season, doing work away from the club as well as while I am at it. I have got my head down and I am enjoying life in general.
“I think (becoming third choice) shows how much I have developed through working with Martin (Taylor) and being pushed by Lucas, Quinny and Fadz to do more away and develop as a person, as well as a player.
“It shows that in a season, you can come on leaps and bounds from coming up (from the Academy), going out on-loan and then coming back and fighting for a place.”
