Young defender signs one-year deal...

United defender Ross Killock has extended his stay at the club by signing a new one-year contract.

The promising 19-year-old centre-back is yet to make a competitive appearance for the club but has had two successful loan spells at Alfreton and Chester.

The defender’s most recent loan spell at Chester saw him make 17 appearances and score two goals and Ross is certain the time away playing games helped him extend his stay at United.

“I’m delighted to have signed again,” said Ross. “It gives me another year to try and kick on and have a chance to break into the team.

“I think that my loan spell at Chester last year was invaluable really in terms of the experience that I gained and that will put me in good stead for this season.

“The next 12 months are massive. You are normally looking at around three years to break into the team and if you don’t it could be the end for you.

“It is a big year for me personally and I’ll need to stay injury free so that I can kick on and get a chance.”
