The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BEN Kennedy has penned an im­proved three-year deal at Steve­nage and chair­man Phil Wal­lace is adamant there is no-one bet­ter for the young­ster to learn from than boss Teddy Sher­ing­ham.

Striker Kennedy, 18, re­turned from hip surgery in the sum­mer to net two goals in four games prior to the week­end, leav­ing Wal­lace stunned.

“The fact that Ben is play­ing Foot­ball League games again just 11 or 12 weeks post-op is amaz­ing in it­self,” he said. “At 18 he will no doubt have his ups and downs, but we think he can learn a lot in the po­si­tion he plays from Teddy and we’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing him im­prove.”
