It’s important that Mark and the rest of the management team know that they have our backing, we understand what we
want to achieve isn’t going to happen overnight and it will take time, but we have the belief that we will get to where we want to be with Mark leading us on the pitch.”

It’s inspiring to see the Chairman and Director of football putting in so much of their time and effort, proper blood, sweat and tears, to make this club the biggest in the region. It was an easy decision for me to make. Having the security of 3 years allows me to be able to instil my game model and a club ethos. It also allows the players to buy into what we all want to achieve. To be successful we all need that continuity.”
