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."

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.

On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.

As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
