Ng has grabbed his opportunity with both hands to establish himself as a first-team player.
Perry Ng has played himself into David Artell plans for next season. Untimely injuries to four of our centre-halves opened the door for the Liverpool-born youngster in his preferred position and the 21-year-old ended the season in impressive form.
After captain George Ray suffered a fracture in his back away at Yeovil, NG had to form a defensive partnership alongside midfield player Billy Bingham, but he still helped us get the results we needed to finish the season comfortably enough.
Artell told the club’s official web-site: “Perry has great character. He is a really good player and we feel there is even more to come from him. He is good defensive and is a good footballer as well.
“He gives his all every day in training and he is able to transfer that into the games. He takes no prisoners and he has more than taken his chance. He will play games again next season that is for sure.
Artell added: “He finds the U-23s too easy now. He was bringing the ball out in those games almost at will and it was good to see him do that against Barnet and put Jordan (Bowery) through on goal. He will get plenty of football next season and we have been delighted with him and Billy (Bingham). There were terrific for us. “
