Powerful defender Beckles joined Town for an undisclosed fee from Accrington Stanley in the summer of 2017.

Omar came through the ranks at Millwall, but after failing to secure a professional contract, he moved to Spain and became part of the Glenn Hoddle Academy.

He returned to England in 2011 and slowly moved through non-league. His big break came when he moved Aldershot in 2015 and after a successful season with the Shots he moved into the Football League for the first time with Accrington.

Standing a 6ft 3inches tall, Beckles became the lynchpin of the Stanley defence and his fine form caught the eye of Town, who gave him a three-year deal in 2017.

Omar had to bide his time, but a long-term injury to Junior Brown allowed him to cement his spot in the side and he was a regular at left-back during the 2017/18 season.

Away from football Beckles runs his own charity the 'Hub 365 Foundation'.
