Digby pens new deal with U's

Cambridge United is delighted to announce that Paul Digby has signed a new two-year contract with the Club...

The 26-year-old has pledged his future to the U’s following an impressive debut season for United, where he made 41 appearances from midfield as the team won promotion to Sky Bet League One.

“It is what I wanted,” Digby said. “I am delighted to have signed and be a part of this football club for another two years. I am grateful that the Club have offered me the deal and put their faith in me to help move the club forward into League One.”

“Paul played an integral role in our season and adds character, physical presence and aggression to the team,” Head Coach Mark Bonner added. “His leadership is vital to us and he has a resilience that drives standards. He is as excited about the step up in leagues as we are and he is determined to prove himself at the next level. It is that mind-set sweeping through the squad that will focus us for the new season.

“Paul organises and encourages people superbly, he breaks up play well and has good understanding defensively. He has played a good number of games already in his career and with his best years ahead of him, we are looking forward to helping him develop further as a player and as a direct influence on our team.”

Digby joins Mitov, Taylor, Dunk and O’Neil to become the fifth Cambridge United player from last season’s squad to sign a new contract with the Club.
