It is nice to be able to get this deal completed and now look towards the future of this football club and its constant evolution.
I have a strong affinity with the area and our supporters after so many years here, and I look forward to putting in the hard work needed to keep the club moving in the right direction. It was an important summer for us to add talent depth to the team, but the work doesn't stop there. As a club, we're about developing and improving players and the environment we foster here is so important to that.
I am looking forward to continuing to develop that environment, work with a great group of players and coaches and build on the positive relationship with our new ownership headed up by Alan.
