Cambridge United boss Jimmy Quinn has secured striker Liam Marum to a new contract which will keep him at Abbey Stadium for three more months.
The 18-year-old has been an indispensable player since Quinn took charge, scoring two goals in two games to compensate for the unfortunate injury to teammate Robbie Simpson.
Marum was on non-contract terms when Quinn took over the reigns at the club and the U's boss has wasted no time in making sure he didn't lose the player.
Quinn told the club's official website: "He has the ability and it's up to Liam now. Personally I think he's got the makings of a good player."
Marum joined the club in August after being released by Premership outfit Reading.
Meanwhile, defender Trevor Robinson has agreed to extend his spell at Abbey Stadium for another month on non-contract terms.
Full-back Rob Gier has also been offered a new deal but is yet to make a decision.
