Semenyo agrees new long-term deal

Antoine Semenyo has signed a new four-year contract in BS3 until June 2023 with the option of a further 12 months.

The 19-year-old attacker penned his first professional deal at Ashton Gate in January 2018 and, after a temporary spell with Bath City, made his senior City debut on the final day of the 2017/18 campaign.

Semenyo continued his progression on loan at Newport County last season and was a regular feature for the League Two outfit, who reached the fifth round of the Emirate FA Cup and the play-offs, netting six times in 32 appearances.

The Academy graduate was then recalled by Lee Johnson in January 2019, going on to make four Sky Bet Championship appearances.

Head Coach Lee Johnson commented: “We believe Antoine has a promising future and are delighted to have secured him on a long-term contract.

“Like many of our young players he benefitted greatly from last season’s loan and continued to develop well when he came back to us.

“We are excited about the impact Antoine can have on the first team and our success next season.”

Semenyo said: “I’m so happy to sign a new deal. This is where the hard work begins though. It’s going to be difficult to cement down a first team position as everyone is here to work hard. I will do my job to the best of my ability and continue to give my all for the team.

“I’m raring to go now, I’m ready and excited for the new season. I’m hoping to score goals, help the team and hopefully we can secure promotion.”
