Digby Signs Until 2017

29 July 2013

Barnsley Football Club is delighted to announce young midfielder Paul Digby has today penned an extension to his current contract at Oakwell, meaning he will remain a Reds player until at least the summer of 2017.

The 18-year-old has showed incredible promise and potential during his early days at Oakwell so far, and the club are delighted to have agreed a new deal with the up-and-coming-midfielder.

“I’m obviously delighted and glad to be here for the next four years,” said Digby. “Hopefully we can progress as a club.

“Last week, I sat down with my agent and he said that the club wanted to keep me here for the next four years. We discussed various things and obviously I was thrilled.

“I just want to get back in the team and continue playing football.

“It’s such a big deal for a young player,”

“To know I’m wanted as part of the club’s future plans gives me a massive boost.”

Digby made his debut as a 16-year-old in 2011 as a 33rd minute substitute at Derby County, but has just returned from a troublesome injury this summer with some impressive displays in pre-season.

The youngster added, “The gaffer has always been telling me I’ll come back stronger, I’ll come back mentally stronger, I’ll grow and develop.”
