David Healy - “delighted to announce several contract extensions”

Posted : 23rd October 2019

David Healy announces news of three contract extensions.

“I’m delighted to advise our supporters that three of our players have agreed and signed contract extensions to take effect upon the expiry of their existing contracts at the end of the current season.

Firstly, inspirational club captain Jamie Mulgrew has agreed a further one year contract extension. He remains a vital, consistent and dependable member of our squad and I’m delighted that our squad will be able to call upon his vast experience for another year. He’s a leader, a winner and a superb role model to all the young players at our club and indeed further afield. He looks after himself extremely well and remains a hugely popular player with our supporters. He’s a great ambassador for this club which he has served with great distinction and loyalty for many years.

In addition, two young players - Stephen Fallon and Alex Moore have agreed two year contract extensions.

Stephen has really come into his own this season and shown the form we have all known he was capable of. We have all believed in him and I’m delighted that he’s been getting the recognition he deserves for his talent, effort, patience and positive attitude. This contract extension is well deserved and will hopefully be a real boost to him and drive him onto being an even more influential player for us. I’ve no doubt he will have a significant contribution to make to the future of this club and I know that our supporters will be delighted with the news that he’s agreed to extend his stay by a further 2 years.

Alex is a young goalkeeper with enormous potential and I’m really pleased that he’s shown this commitment to the club, by agreeing this contract extension. He’s had first team experience with us and while on loan at Dungannon, where he really made a positive impression. Since he returned to this club, he has displayed a first class attitude and if he were to be called upon, I would have every confidence in him in goal. I’m sure he can progress and develop into a top class keeper and as with Stephen Fallon, he too has earned this extended contract.

A few weeks ago, Jordan Stewart and Kirk Millar signed contract extensions and now we have agreed new deals with Jamie Mulgrew, Stephen Fallon and Alex Moore.

Over the coming weeks I will continue to hold talks with other players with regard to their future intentions and hopefully, we will have more good news to report to our supporters in due course.

There’s a good deal of positivity around the club at present and hopefully, the news of these signings can serve as a further boost to everyone, as we build up towards a huge game at Coleraine on Saturday.”
