SOLIHULL Moors midfielder Jamey Osborne has put pen-to-paper on a new contract, extending his stay at the club until June 2022.
The creative dynamo, who was heading into his final year of his previous contract, now turns all his attentions to helping Moors build on their successful 2018/19 campaign.
Osborne signs the new deal ahead of making his 100th appearance for the Moors against Aldershot Town at the SportNation.bet Stadium tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm), and says he is relieved to get negotiations out of the way to concentrate fully on the season ahead.
“I’m delighted, I wanted to do it sooner rather than later,” he said.
“It’s something that we first spoke about last season, but we put it to one side, and we spoke about it in the summer.
“It’s unbelievable where the club was 18 months ago to now.
“The club’s only going one way and I think that’s a massive thing as to why I wanted to commit myself to the club for another few years.”
His manager Tim Flowers, meanwhile, re-iterated the importance of the 27-year-old to his side and said he was integral for the future successes of the club.
“We’re delighted to have secured Jamey’s signature for the next two years after this one,” he said.
“He’s been an integral part of the team and I consider him to be one of the best footballers in the National League.
“He’s an outstanding player but also a great person to have around. He’s the type of person we want around the club and to build a team around.”
