A number of Birmingham City supporters have been reacting to the latest confirmation from the Blues that promising goalkeeper Zach Jeacock has signed a new contract.
Jeacock managed to make two Championship appearances for Birmingham last term, including keeping a clean sheet on the opening day of the campaign as they secured a win against eventual play-off winners Brentford. He also featured in the 4-0 loss against Cardiff City in the Blues’ final home fixture of the season.
The 20-year-old had spent some time on the sidelines through an ankle injury during the campaign but he still managed to play a key role in the development side winning title-winning exploits.
The keeper could well establish himself as Birmingham’s number two next season behind Neil Etheridge with Lee Bowyer needing to find the right option to be the back-up to the Blues’ first choice between the sticks. Jeacock has the potential to be that player and maybe even push into the number one spot in coming years.
How well do you know Birmingham City’s celebrity supporters? – Can you score 20/20?
Birmingham on their official website have now confirmed that he has signed a new deal that keeps him with the club until the summer of 2024.
