Mickleover Sports player-manager John McGrath has put pen to paper in a new 2-year deal, keeping him at the club until 2019.
McGrath lead Sports to a mid-table finish in the NPL Premier Division following a relegation battle in the season before he arrived, spelling excellent progress.
Sports Chairman Don Amott said “So pleased John has decided to sign a new 2 year deal with the club – he is a key figure of our future and I believe a strong relationship between the manager and the chairman is so important in all football clubs. It’s a pleasure for me to work with John”.
McGrath added “I am delighted to continue my work as manager of Mickleover Sports and show my commitment by signing a new two year contract. With everything happening off the pitch with our new development going ahead and with the support of the chairman Don Amott, the board and club committee members, Mickleover Sports is a club that has an exciting future ahead and I am privileged to be a part of it all”.
McGrath has already made progress during this close-season with the signing of highly-rated strikers Bradley Grayson, and Evan Garnett signalling his intent to continue to build an attractive brand of attacking football.
In addition McGrath has worked hard to confirm a rich line-up of pre-season friendlies including Sheffield United, Notts County, Burton Albion, Coventry City and Mansfield Town.
