Former LFE apprentice Tyler Goodrham has put pen to paper on fresh terms at Oxford United, extending his stay at the Kassam Stadium until the summer of 2024, with the option of a further year.
After spending most of last season on loan at Slough Town in the National League South, the 19-year-old has now become a regular fixture in Karl Robinson’s Oxford United team. He also netted his first goal for the League One club at the beginning of the season, scoring a dramatic late winner against Cambridge in August.
Goodrham told Oxford’s website: “I’m more than happy to be offered a new contract and I’m really looking forward to it. I have loved being part of the squad this season and it’s all about gaining experience and learning as you go along. I had two loans last season which helped me a lot, then pre-season went well and when I got my chance in the First Team I was so determined to make the most of it.
“I’m still learning all the time but I try to play with a smile and the Gaffer is excellent; he wants us to play attacking football and that really suits my game.”
His manager Karl Robinson said: “Tyler is an outstanding young man. The fans have taken to him because of his energy and enthusiasm, but technically he is also very good and we think he has a very bright future here.”
