Fleetwood Town are delighted to confirm goalkeeper Billy Crellin has signed a new contract at the club.
The 17-year-old has been rewarded for his progress in the Development Squad by penning a new deal which will keep him at the club until June 2020.
Crellin, who has featured in the Cod Army's first team squad on a number of occasions already this season, was part of England’s U17 World Cup winning side last summer, featuring in the Three Lions' win against Iraq.
He was previously contracted to the club until 2019, with the new deal extending that for a further 12 months.
On the news, Chairman Andy Pilley said: “We are pleased to have secured a new contract for Billy, a player who has clear potential and what we think is a big future in the game.
“He was offered a long-term contract a year ago, but we felt due to his progress, and his participation in the U17s World Cup winning squad, it was right to reward him with an improved contract at Fleetwood Town.
“We’ve seen plenty of speculation about Billy and his future in recent months and feel this new deal suits both parties at the current time.
“We look forward to watching Billy grow as a person and a footballer, and hopefully one day will see him develop into Fleetwood Town’s number one.”
