AFC Bournemouth extend youngster Ben Greenwood’s contract!

AFC Bournemouth Development squad captain Ben Greenwood has agreed an extension to his contract with the club.

The extended deal will keep the full-back with the Cherries until at least the summer of 2024.

Greenwood said, “I’m buzzing to have a further year here at the club I’ve played for the past three or four years; I couldn’t be happier.”

“It tops off a good season for me personally, too, so I’m buzzing.”

This term has seen the defender make his first-team debut and skipper the development squad to a cup final.

That senior debut for the Cherries came back in August, when the defender started away at Norwich City in the Carabao Cup.

Greenwood was substituted off in second-half added time ahead of progression being secured on penalties.

With the development squad, the full-back has been a mainstay in the side and played a key role in booking a Hampshire Senior Cup final spot at Fratton Park earlier this month.

The 20-year-old also was a consistent figure in the team’s Premier League Cup campaign, memorably netting a sensational late winner against Derby County at Vitality Stadium.

Greenwood shared, “I’m thankful for all of the opportunities I’ve been given, and I’ve definitely learnt a lot within that as well.”

“That only stands me in good stead for next season and has meant I’ve really enjoyed this one.”

“Being captain of the development squad, having a good year and then making my first-team debut at the start of the season, that’s always the aim.”

He added, “Hopefully, I can kick on and there’s more to come next season; I’m really excited about it.”

“I’ll keep myself in good shape while I’m off, come back and then see what happens in pre-season.”
