IT has been a tough sea­son for Birm­ing­ham but man­ager Lee Clark has found cause for op­ti­mism in the emer­gence of some promis­ing young­sters.

A year’s con­tract op­tion on Cal­lum Reilly has been taken up while the club have of­fered new deals to fel­low Acad­emy grad­u­ates Mitchell Han­cox and Will Pack­wood.

“The emer­gence of so many young, tal­ented play­ers in and around the first team has been one of the high­lights of my first year at the club,” he said.

“The fact that th­ese new con­tracts have been of­fered proves that, as a club, we are com­mit­ted to build­ing for the fu­ture.”
