Over time I hope I can pay the club back for showing faith in me. I cant wait to get going and meet everyone. I am particularly looking forward to meeting the players.”

We are both looking forward to working in the great facilities that the club have in place. Hopefully we can give the loyal fans a good brand of football to watch for the coming season.”
