He is seen as a rising star in NZ and made his Hyundai A-League debut as a 17-year-old in round 20 of last season.

The teenager was the inaugural recipient of the Winston Reid scholarship, moving from his home in Auckland where he had come through the Wellington Phoenix Soccer Schools program since he was eight.

The central midfielder has made two Hyundai A-League appearances, well as playing 14 games in the Stirling Sports Premiership this season.

Meanwhile defender Lowry, 23, joined the club from Western Australia on a one-year contract and after 14 appearance for the first team has impressed enough to sign a two year extension.

The 24-year-old has scored five goals in 29 appearances for the Nix.

In an exciting period for the club, Phoenix are set to unveil their new coach in Wellington next week.
