We are pleased to announce the news which sees Jonathan Mitchell put pen-to-paper on a contract extension until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old joined the club at the beginning of November to provide competition in the goalkeeper department following an injury to Mark Oxley.
Speaking on this extension, Mitchell said: “I am delighted to now have a deal until the end of the season. Obviously, I came in to provide injury cover and ended up getting injured but now I am looking forward to the end of the season.
“I’ve been welcomed with open arms since joining the club, I am really enjoying representing the club and while I have been injured the club have been great with me.”
Manager Simon Weaver said: “We have been really impressed by the attitude and application which Mitch has shown while he has been with us. He was under a lot of pressure on a short-term contract but he showed his metal and I think that is something which deserves rewarding.
“We now have an abundance of talent in that goalkeeper department. It is up to those lads to provide that competition for places and that should help to maintain the high level of quality we have seen in recent weeks.”
Mitchell continued his road to recovery this week by taking part in first-team training sessions ahead of our trip to face Forest Green.
