Tommy extends stay while option taken on Tawanda and Tyreece

Tommy Hughes has signed a new six-month deal with the Blues.

The 21-year-old forward played a key role as the Club's U23s won the Professional Development League South, and has now been rewarded with another contract having initially signed professional terms in the summer of 2020.

Town have also activated the option in the contracts of Tawanda Chirewa and Tyreece Simpson, which extends their respective deals until the summer of 2023.

An attacking midfielder who featured in Kieran McKenna's matchday squad for the penultimate game of the 2021/22 season, an away fixture at Crewe, 18-year-old Tawanda flourished for the young Blues last term across the U18s and U23s age groups.

Tyreece, 20, has racked up seven first-team appearances with the Club to date and spent the first half of last campaign on loan at League Two side Swindon Town.
