READ | Laurence pens contract extension

6 June 2018

Rotherham United goalkeeper Laurence Bilboe has signed a new one-year deal with the Millers.

The Academy graduate has yet to make his professional bow for the club, but has been involved in the first-team squad on a number of occasions over the past two seasons.

The 20-year-old, who has enjoyed loan spells with the likes of Mickleover, Brighouse and Sheffield FC whilst with the Milers, has penned a deal until June 2019.

“Laurence has done really well,” first-team/development coach Matthew Hamshaw told www.themillers.co.uk.

“He has been great in training, he works hard and we feel he has earned his deal.

“I am a big believer that goalkeepers develop a little later. There are some that arrive early, Marek (Rodak) is a great example of that, but he is one on his own if I am honest. You do see many 'keepers his age playing week in, week out.

“It has been great for Laurence to see and work with the likes of Marek, Pricey (Lewis Price) and of course Polly (Mike Pollitt). He has worked hard, we have seen good progression during last season, and we are now looking for him to kick on again.

“Laurence is learning every day. If we have to throw him in, then we will. Polly likes him, all the staff like him, and he has shown signs that there is progression there.”
