Walsall striker George Bowerman has been handed a new contract after breaking into the League One club's first-team plans this season.
Bowerman, who enjoyed a spell on loan at Redditch last term, made his Saddlers debut earlier in the campaign and has scored twice in six substitute appearances in total.
The deal runs until 2013, with a further year's option in Walsall's favour, and manager Dean Smith believes the 20-year-old merits the new contract.
"George has done really well," Smith told the club's official website. "He has worked extremely hard over the past year or so and thoroughly deserves this new deal.
"He was a regular scorer at youth and reserve team level and now he is starting to transfer that into the first team. This contract is a reward for that and hopefully he will go on to score many more goals for this club.
"His attitude has been first class; he is a willing lad who wants to learn and improve, and I am looking forward to working with him and helping him develop."
