McGavin Signs New Deal
Wednesday, 9th Sep 2020 19:56

Midfielder Brett McGavin has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club having an option for a further season.

The 20-year-old, who had a year remaining on his previous terms, says he can see a pathway into the first team, having already made four senior starts.

"You see the team now, there are plenty of young players,” the academy product, son of former Blues youth player and academy head of recruitment Steve, told the club site.

"A few of us have had opportunities in the past and I think that’ll continue to happen. That is a factor of me staying. I see an opportunity and a pathway here.

"There are people like Skusey [Cole Skuse] who I've learnt a lot from. It’s all competition, it’s anyone's shirt to grab. I’ll be working my hardest to get the shirt.

"Obviously I want to stay here but my main ambition is to get into a team, whether that’s here or on loan. That’s my goal, [playing] first-team football."

McGavin made his league debut in the 1-0 home defeat to Fleetwood shortly before the 2019/20 season was brought to a premature end.

"It was tough but it was great to be involved with the team and it was a learning curve,” he recalled. "You take bits from each game forwards into training and the next game.

"It’s a learning experience, you take the positive and you take the negatives and work with them."

Best of luck Brett. Hope you get a chance to break into the first team here rather than elsewhere.

good prospect so hope he gets his chance and has a great career at PR

Think Brett needs to get out on loan this year. He has a big future but a year playing first team football in the national league would surely do him the power of good

Love to see this - the future “Skuse”...

When I took in the Peterborough cup game, he reminded me of Gerrard in his body/ pass movement.

I predict a massive future.

Who on earth is that guy in the video doing the interview. Sounds like he’s just woken up

Congratulations Brett. Comes across as a very mature young man. Fingers crossed.

Yes needs to take the next step up the ladder and go out on loan.

Quite correct young man you have learnt from the premiership class number 8 how it shouldn't be done, now make a name for yourself in a blue shirt you are from what i've seen more than capable.
