Somerset Live say that tying down Anthony Straker was almost as simple as putting a contract in front of him, according to Bath City boss Jerry Gill.

The Romans skipper has been a staple in the left-back berth since his arrival two summers ago and been one of the star performers over the thrilling first seven months of the current campaign.

And ahead of Tuesday night’s win over Hampton & Richmond Borough, it was revealed Straker had agreed to a third season at Twerton Park before the current one is even out.

It was the latest in a series of contract confirmations for next season, with the 30-year-old following in the footsteps of his manager, and the versatile Joe Raynes.

Speaking after the Hampton game, in which Jack Batten’s goal was enough to secure the three points, Gill couldn’t speak highly enough of his captain.

He said: “Fantastic, I think Strakes has been immense since I’ve joined the football club.

“He’s what I call a proper man; he turns up for training, he lives in Southampton and he turns up for training on Tuesdays and on Thursdays.”
