The 18-year-old journeyed to London from Sydney to join the academy set-up two years ago and according to the club "has made fantastic progress since".

He’s already playing above his age group with eight appearances for our Under-21s to his name so far this season, has been training regularly with the first team and has been involved in the pre-match goalkeepers’ warm-up on matchdays in the last few weeks. 

He kept a clean sheet in his most recent Under-21s outing as Spurts beat Porto 4-0 in the Premier League International Cup, a result which he said came as the icing on the cake following a good period of progress on and off the pitch.

“I’ve over the moon to sign a new contract,” he said after putting pen to paper. “These last few weeks in particular have been great, training with the first team, signing a new contract and the Porto result just tops it all off with the 4-0 win.

“It’s great to be able to work with the talented goalkeepers we have here and they’ve been a great help to me in my progress, especially this season.

“Working with Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and Luke McGee, who has really pushed me – as well as our coach Toni Jimenez and Rob Burch (Academy goalkeeping coach) – can only improve me and I feel like I’ve made good progress, but I need to keep going now and keep striving to get better.

“My targets for the moment are to keep playing regularly for the Under-21s, keep training with the first team and being involved in matchday squads and build on things from there.”
