The 20-year-old played ten times for the U’s last term, including 90 minutes against the Saddlers in the Papa John’s Trophy last November.

He enjoyed a short loan spell at Hemel Hempstead Town early in the 2021/22 season and was recently rewarded with a new contract at the Abbey Stadium.

The defender began his career at AFC Sudbury where he impressed to earn a trial at Cambridge before signing for their partner club St Neots Town.

While training with Cambridge’s first team and playing for St Neots, he earned his first professional deal and made his debut in August 2021.

Speaking via the club's official website, Head Coach Michael Flynn insisted Bennett is a strong addition to the squad, he said; "Liam comes in to add competition to the squad.

"He’s played higher in League One. He’s honest, he’s up and down the pitch, has great energy and can play in a few positions. I’m looking forward to working with him."
