"He will take the knocks you get as a player and use them to drive him on"
Luke Chambers says Flynn Downes has all the credentials to be a top player.
Town boss Paul Lambert spoke warmly of Academy graduate, Flynn, in his press conference on Thursday and the skipper has echoed his belief that the midfielder can go on to play at a high level.
“It’s good to see some of our best young prospects getting signed up on contracts now at the Club. We have got some really good youngsters here. Flynn Downes is definitely one of them,” Chambo told the Club website.
“He has the ability to be a top player. That can be an overused word in football but Flynn has all the credentials to go to the top.
“He’s got great ability but he’s also got the right attitude as well. He will take the knocks you get as a player and use them to drive him on.
“The manager has shown a lot of faith in him. He’s playing games week in, week out. He’s got a good career ahead of him and the Club needs to keep hold of lads like Flynn.”
