LU­TON goal­keeper El­liot Justham ad­mits his pro­gres­sion over re­cent months has blown him away af­ter ex­tend­ing his stay with the club un­til 2017.

It’s been a me­te­oric rise for the 24-year old, who signed for Hat­ters from East Thur­rock in 2013, but was sec­ond choice goal­keeper un­til late Fe­bru­ary.

“The last two years have been a bit of a whirl­wind and I’ve had to adapt to be­ing a pro foot­baller, but I’m de­lighted to sign for an­other two years at this mas­sive club,” he said.

“I’ve learned a lot and I have a lot of peo­ple to thank: Mark Tyler in par­tic­u­lar, he’s been bril­liant, as has Kevin Dear­den since he’s come in as keeper coach; and the gaffer, of course.”

Manager John Still ad­mit­ted Justham’s pro­gres­sion had been one of the high­lights of the sea­son.

“The one pos­i­tive from our run of bad form was El­liot’s per­for­mances,” said Still. “He has come in and proven how good he is. He’s showed us all why we brought him to this foot­ball club.

“Mark might have been out in­jured but El­liot has grabbed his op­por­tu­nity with both hands.”
