Popular full-back Dion Kelly-Evans has committed his future to the club by signing a new one-year deal.
The 24-year-old completes a full set of players to have accepted our offer of a new contract after Jim O’Brien, Sam Slocombe, Adam Chicksen, Connell Rawlinson, Tiernan Brooks and Tyreace Palmer also put pen to paper.
And Ian Burchnall is very pleased to further strengthen his back line with Kelly-Evans’ signature.
“Everyone knows what Dion’s about,” said the head coach. “He has no off switch – be it in training or in games, he brings the same level of intensity.
“Not only that but he’s a great lad who is keen to better himself and, with there being so much more time on the training ground this season, I’m sure we can continue to bring him on leaps and bounds.
“For Dion and all the other boys to have accepted our offers speaks volumes about the positive environment we’re building here and it gives us a really strong base heading into pre-season.
“Of course, we’re still working hard to bring new signings to the club. We’re being ambitious with our targets, which means a little extra patience is required, but we’re pleased with the progress we’re making.”
