Wycombe Wanderers striker Junior Morias has signed a new one-year contract with the League Two club.
The 18-year-old, who has also been loaned out to non-league clubs Hendon and Boreham Wood, has made 31 appearances for The Chairboys, and manager Gareth Ainsworth has backed him to start delivering in 2014-15 despite an inability so far to score a goal for the Buckinghamshire side.
“I feel that Junior hasn’t yet reached anything like his full potential but I think, with another year under his belt, we can get the best out of him on the pitch,” Ainsworth told Wycombe’s official website.
“He trains very well and has amazing moments which he needs to transfer into matches.
“I can’t wait to see his – and the fans’ – reaction to his first goal.”
Morias is the eighth player to have agreed fresh terms with Wycombe since 2013-14 ended, with Gary Doherty, Sam Wood, Stuart Lewis, Matt Bloomfield, Steven Craig, Charlie Horlock and Tommy Fletcher also staying at Adams Park.
All will be hoping to improve on a difficult campaign for the club last season which saw Wanderers needing, and getting, a final day win at already-relegated Torquay United, coupled with defeat for Bristol Rovers against Mansfield Town, to preserve their Football League status.
They begin the new term with a trip to Newport County on August 9, followed by a League Cup tie at Millwall three days later.
