Stamford AFC manager Graham Drury signs new two-year contract with the Northern Premier League South East Division club
Stamford manager Graham Drury has signed a new two-year contract that will keep him in charge at the Zeeco Stadium until the end of the 2022/23 season.
The Northern Premier League South East Division club confirmed Drury's contract extension this week in what is the 'natural next step having taken the club to the verge of promotion from step four last season', only for the season to be declared null and void due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Daniels again started this season strongly but, with the league currently suspended until March 6, they are now having to face the prospect of not being able to complete a second consecutive season.
Chairman David Whitby said: "With the commitment of the new contract, comes certainty and stability allowing Graham to further build his squad for the longer term and pursue the club's vision in moving higher in the football pyramid.
"Graham’s energy and passion have a big impact throughout the club. This impact is central to the club’s success and I am delighted he shares the club’s views that there is much to be achieved both on and off the pitch.
"Graham has assembled a superb squad of players at the club, playing tremendous football and I am sure that all Daniels supporters share my delight in the new agreement and in anticipating the exciting opportunities that, with continued hard work, are there to be taken.”
