Will Mannion signs new deal

Will Mannion has signed a new two-year contract with Cambridge United…

The 24-year-old goalkeeper has extended his stay at the Abbey Stadium following his move to the Club last Summer.

After spending part of the season on loan at Havant & Waterlooville, Mannion returned to the First Team set-up where he made his first two league appearances in games against Charlton and Cheltenham.

“I am delighted,” Mannion said. “It is a fantastic club – the coaching staff and players are all brilliant so it was a no-brainer really.

“I have got two years now to push on and try to establish myself as the number one so I am looking forward to it. We both know there is only one shirt but all we can do is push each other and support each other. I am really looking forward to the challenge.”

Mark Bonner said, “Will has made some noticeable improvements throughout the season and working with Martin has shown the kind of development we want our players to.

“He finished the season in a positive fashion with two good performances which gives us further confidence that he will continue creating good competition for Dimitar while growing further still individually.”

Mannion is the third Cambridge United player to put pen-to-paper on a new deal, following the confirmation that Greg Taylor and Harrison Dunk would both continue their careers at the Club.
