Ironside pens new deal

Cambridge United is delighted to announce that Joe Ironside has signed a new and improved contract with the club…

The 27-year-old striker scored 14 league goals last season to help fire the U’s to League Two promotion and with three league goals already this season, Ironside has continued his rich vein of goal-scoring form.

"I am delighted to sign a new deal with the club and help carry on the great work that we are achieving together,” Ironside said. “To win promotion last season was personally a very proud moment.

“It was an easy decision to continue playing under the coaching staff, with this group of players and for our amazing fans. I have loved every minute since walking through the door and the Gaffer, Gary and Barry and the whole coaching staff have been brilliant with me.

“I am really excited about my future here at the Us and it is great to be back out there finally playing in front of the fans. I am looking forward to carrying on working hard and creating more memories with the club.”

Mark Bonner said, “Joey had a superb season last year and an extension to his contract is well deserved. He is a focal point of the team when he plays and represents us with the endeavour, bravery and physicality we love to see.

“As a character he is one of many important men in our squad and played a large part in our success last season. We are enjoying working together and taking on the new challenge of League One.”

The United forward’s new deal extends his terms at the club until June 2023.
