Seven new deals for Moors stars

Seven Spennymoor Town players have agreed new contracts with the club, ready for the 2020/21 season.

Jason Ainsley, the Management Team, the Chief Executive and the Managing Director met recently to agree the direction for the playing squad for next season and have now set about implementing their strategy.

That began with seven of last season’s squad agreeing new deals over the course of the last week, with further work ongoing.

The squad eventually finished last season sixth in the National League North, which would have been enough to clinch a spot in the play-offs had the global coronavirus pandemic not stepped in to bring an early end to the campaign.

 

New deals agreed:

Robert Ramshaw

Carl Magnay

Mark Anderson

James Curtis

Jamie Chandler

Nathan Buddle

Ben Mckenna

Top scorer Glen Taylor and winger Ryan Hall are under contract with the club for at least another 12 months until May 2021 and will automatically be part of the squad for 2020/21.

Jason Ainsley was quick to praise the players’ decision making and look forward to the next campaign.

He said: “We’ve got a great group of lads at this football club and a special atmosphere in the changing room.

“The players signing new contracts so quickly shows how enjoyable the environment is for a footballer to be here.

“Whenever the new season starts, we have individuals who possess the quality, the commitment and the application to achieve something already within this group of players.  We will be ready and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish.

“There is a lot more work to be done on the squad over the coming days and weeks to build a team that will thrill the supporters and deliver an enjoyable and competitive season.”
