AFC WIM­BLE­DON boss Neal Ard­ley says James Shea’s swift rate of pro­gres­sion con­vinced him to of­fer the goal­keeper a new con­tract.

The for­mer Ar­se­nal stop­per’s ca­reer looked to have stut­tered when he joined Non-League Har­row Bor­ough fol­low­ing his re­lease from the Gun­ners in 2013, but the 23-year-old is flour­ish­ing at Kingsmeadow and this week ex­tended his cur­rent deal, though the terms haven’t been dis­closed.

“He has shown great ap­pli­ca­tion to be at the level he is at now and that’s ahead of where we hoped he would be,” Ard­ley said. “Good goal­keep­ers are at a pre­mium and we be­lieve we’ve got a very good one.”
