Brentford B defender Fin Stevens has signed a new three-year contract with a Club option of a further year.
The 18-year-old, who joined the young Bees from Worthing in the summer of 2020, has had an impressive start to life with the Club having made his First Team debut at the age of 17 against Fulham in the Carabao Cup.
Fin has also gone on to feature in the Emirates FA Cup against Middlesbrough and Leicester City before making his SkyBet Championship debut against Preston North End on 10 April.
The youngster has been an integral part of Neil MacFarlane’s side over the course of the season at right back and he has helped the team to impressive wins over the likes of Chelsea Under-23s and Arsenal Under-23s. His form also earned him his first international call-up for the Wales Under-21 side as he featured for 90 minutes against the Republic of Ireland Under-21s in March this year.
Discussing Fin’s new contract, Brentford B Head Coach Neil MacFarlane said: “Fin has had an amazing first season at the Club. We recruited him from Worthing where he came to us after getting some experience from playing non-league football, which I think has been beneficial to him to make the step up.
“He’s had a really good period with the B Team, and he’s shown a lot of personality. He has a really good desire to keep improving as well as a will to win. He’s a terrific kid to work with every single day. He’s had really good training minutes with the First Team in recent months and overall this season has had good game time for the B Team and the First Team. I think he should be very proud of his season.
“We have him now for the next few years and we have a terrific talent. He has earned the respect of both groups and I am really hopeful that in the coming years he will kick on even more, because there is so much more development in him and so much more to come.”
