Dawson gets new contract

Michael DawsonIt’s great news to see Michael Dawson sign a new deal until 2012. He absolutely deserves it – he’s been so consistent and such a man mountain in defence.

He told the club’s website: “It’s really great that the Club has looked to reward me with a new contract. I still had four years left on my contract so this represents a further commitment on both my and the Club’s behalf.

“We have got everything to play for as we head into our final game of the season. Our squad has settled so well. We’ve got a lot of different nationalities and our fair share of jokers, the team spirit is fantastic. You might think we are looking for a rest but actually we’ve all enjoyed the season so much that, in some ways, we are sad it is coming to an end.”
