Stamford AFC have handed current manager Graham Drury a new contract to extend his time at the club.

On Monday night the club extended Drury’s deal for another two years following a highly successful showing in pre-season so far.

A club statement said: “The improved deal recognises both the tremendous effort he put in last season to stave off relegation from the Northern Premier League - and the Herculean efforts which went into building such an exciting squad after the FA had remarkably backtracked on their decision to give the club a relegation reprieve.”

Daniels chairman Bob Feetham said: “Graham shook off that bitter disappointment and is now fully targeted on winning us immediate promotion back to the NPL. It should also not be forgotten that when he arrived pre-Christmas, we were slipping further and further into trouble.

“He rescued a difficult position and, after New Year, achieved top ten levels of performance, shook off that awful home hoodoo and very nearly took us to safety.”

He continued: “That deserves this recognition and It also gives the club consistency. I congratulate Graham and wish him well for what I know will be a great season.”

Stamford face UCL Premier Division outfit Deeping Rangers tonight in another pre-season friendly, away at the Haydon Whitham Stadium. Kick-off 7.45pm.
