David Healy announces news of a contract extension for Jamie Mulgrew.
‘I’m delighted to confirm that Jamie Mulgrew has today agreed a further one year contract extension, to take effect on the expiry of his existing contract at the end of this season.
Jamie is an influential figure at the club and his hunger to succeed remains undiminished.
He’s an inspirational captain and leader, on and off the pitch and he keeps himself in great condition and fitness, to have been able to play in 38 of our 44 games so far this season.
His form this season is as good as it was when I first walked through the door over 7 years ago and he believes he can continue to make a meaningful contribution as a player in the squad for another season.
Having played in over 700 games for the Club, his vast experience will continue to be of major benefit and I’m delighted to be able to continue working with him.
He’s a hugely popular and honest player and captain and the news of this contract extension is a huge boost to everyone at the club, ahead of a huge derby game at Seaview tomorrow night.
He’s a superb role model to our younger players and his status as one of the all time legends at the club is already assured.”
