Maynard-Brewer signs new long-term contract


Charlton Athletic is delighted to announce that Ashley Maynard-Brewer has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper has penned a three-year deal, keeping him at Charlton until at least 2026.

The academy graduate, who joined the Addicks at the age of 14, has made 17 first team appearances so far this season - 14 of which have come in Sky Bet League One.

He was also part of Australia's 18-man squad for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

After putting pen-to-paper on a new deal, Maynard-Brewer said: "I’m really happy to sign on for the next three years. I’ve had some amazing experiences and met some great people involved in the club. Now, I want to continue to play games, progress and hopefully be a part of the successes of the club moving forward."

Manager Dean Holden said: "Ash is a brilliant, young goalkeeper with huge potential to go really far in the game. Aside from his technical aspects as a goalkeeper, he’s got a great temperament, a great attitude to work and he's eager to learn. Obviously he’s been number one since I’ve come in and his performances have been outstanding.

“He’s a big asset to the club so it was really important that we got him tied down. It’s brilliant that he’s committed his future to the club because he can see what we’re trying to do. He enjoys it here with the environment that we’ve created."

CEO Peter Storrie added: "Ashley is a very talented young goalkeeper with a bright future ahead of him. He’s been on a long journey at Charlton and his continued progression is a testament to his work and the work of those around him at the football club. He’s one of many excellent players to come through our academy and we’re really pleased to see him sign a new contract committing his future to the club.”

The deal is subject to final EFL approval.
