Club captain Nicky Devlin today signed a deal for the 2016/17 season.
Manager Ian McCall said :”This a great bit of business for the club as Nicky could easily have moved elsewhere. Since we came to the club Nicky has been one of the most consistent players and lead the club to promotion in his first season as captain.
He is a great ambassador for the club by the way he conducts himself and the way he relates to supporters, young and old, when coaching.
It’s no surprise that he was voted in the PFA League One team of the year as we always said we had the best full backs in the league.
Our supporters need to be patient as we are making sure we get the right players for the Championship and Nicky is certainly one of those.”
Nicky said :”I genuinely can’t wait to play and captain this club in the Championship. After we got promoted I had absolutely no interest in going anywhere else. It’s going to be a really tough season however we are going to be playing at some great stadiums against big clubs and I just can’t wait to get started.
Seeing the crowd here for the playoff final made my decision easy and we are going to need our fans support more than ever this season. We will need a good home record and that’s where our fans really need to get behind us and make it difficult for opposing teams.”
