Blues extend three player contracts
11 April 2022


Blues can confirm they have taken up the option to extend the contracts of three young players.

The Club have triggered one-year extensions for Josh Andrews, Odin Bailey and Ryan Stirk, with all impressing on their ongoing loans during the 2021/22 season.

This news means that the trio - who all featured in 2018’s run to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals - will be tied to Blues until the summer of 2023.

Stirk is another Academy graduate who joined the Club at the start of the last decade. The midfielder went on to sign a scholarship in 2017 and was handed a professional deal at the age of 17, a period that coincided with recognition in the Wales youth setup that has seen him currently represent his nation up to Under-21s level. After making his first two professional outings at the end of the 2020/21 season, Stirk switched to Mansfield last July for the current campaign and has turned out more than 30 times.

Congratulations, lads!
