The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BAR­NET boss Martin Allen ex­pressed his de­light at Jamie Stephens sign­ing a new deal with the club, adamant the goal­keeper has a bright fu­ture.

Stephens joined the Bees in the sum­mer af­ter be­ing re­leased by New­port County, and ahead of this week­end had made 26 ap­pear­ances.

And the 22-year-old is set to be a fix­ture at Bar­net for some time yet af­ter pen­ning a new two-year deal with the club.

“He’s grown in con­fi­dence and he’s grown in stature,” Allen said.

“It’s a great move to get this young goal­keeper signed up, with an op­tion to ex­tend af­ter that.”
