KRIS Twardek, Kyron Farrell, Chris Parr and Jamie Philpot have signed their first professional contracts at Millwall.

The young quartet join the senior ranks at the club after agreeing one-year deals.

Philpot has scored regularly for the Lions' youth teams this season, finding the net 14 times in his combined appearances for the U18s and U21s.

The striker, above, was on the bench for the first team at Brentford in March and could be included in the squad to face Wolves this weekend.

Midfielders Farrell and Twardek have both been involved at international level for the Republic of Ireland and Czech Republic respectively.

Parr, a defender, has captained Millwall's U18s and featured prominently in the U21s' recent nine-game unbeaten run.

    Good news, more young blood being injected into the squad but I think these 4 will be out on season long loans for next season to L2 clubs to get some valuable consistent game time. We already have the likes of O'Brian, Powell, Sid and Fred for the L1 campaign all with experience already under their belt. Still it's all very exciting for the present and future of the club.

      @Bexley_Lion: I hope you're right Bexley but it may be a case of having to get them in to our first team squad asap. We'll have to wait and see who wants to still play for us when then contracts are handed out.

        @REAL Supporter: Hi Lee,we dont seem so down in the mouth as we were for most of the season,i hope one or two if not all these lad's crack it,as there is nothing better than home grown talent .Look where a bunch of kid's helped Man Unt go,so thing's do look a lot brighter.

          @jim1222: Yep, totally agree Jim. A bit worried though regarding the embargo (in January?). So, we need to get some decent players in the squad before that kicks in.
          See you in August mate and have a good break.

    In 50 years of watching Millwall I can't remember a time when we had so many promising youth players on the books. Grow your own is our future
