BAJFC are pleased to announce that defender Barry Myles has committed himself to the club by signing a two-year contract extension until the summer of 2019.
Like attacking midfielder Paul McLellan last week, Barry was out of contract come the end of the season but Fed manager Keith Gibson had been working behind the scenes to capture Barry’s signature for a further two years despite several clubs keeping tracks on Barry.
Barry, pictured against Newtongrange Star back in January, is no stranger to Whitton Park, he played for the Fed from season 2007/8 until he left in May 2013. Barry then re-signed for the Fed back in February 2015 from local side Carnoustie Panmure and was instrumental in helping the side gain promotion from the Premier League via the play-off win over Armadale Thistle.
He then went on to play his part in help guiding his side to Super League safety last season, finishing tenth in their maiden season and winning the club’s Player of the Year award at the end of the season which was thoroughly deserved. (He does claim he’s won another three POTY awards but this could not be confirmed…..by anyone!)
Fed manager Keith Gibson said on his latest capture “Once again, I’m delighted to have captured Barry’s signature which sees him extending his contract at the club for another two years. He’s a 100% man towards this club, totally committed at training, match days and social events. His presence in our back four is vital during a game and he throw’s in the odd goal or two during a season. Hopefully, we’ll have more news as in players signing or re-signing for the club in due course as we plan ahead for next season…”
All at BAJFC would like to wish Barry all the best in his future two years at the club.
