Jim signs new deal

O'Brien going nowhere

6 July 2021

Jim O’Brien has become the sixth player to accept the offer of a new two-year contract at Meadow Lane.

The 33-year-old midfielder is now the longest-serving member of the squad having joined us in January 2019.

And Ian Burchnall is delighted to be retaining the fiery Scotsman.

“I’ve been hugely impressed with Jim’s attitude and ability since my arrival at the club,” said the head coach.

“He’s got terrific energy and I think you could see how much we missed him when he picked up a couple of really unfortunate injuries towards the end of last season.

“Importantly, he understands how we want to play which gives us continuity going into the new campaign.

“With Michael Doyle taking a step back from playing and Frank Vincent being a younger player with lots still to learn, it’s a huge boost to keep someone of Jim’s professionalism and experience and we’re working hard to add more depth to this area of the squad.”
