Matlock Town FC can confirm this evening that captain Adam Yates has signed a new deal to remain with the club for the 2017/2018 season.
Yates joined Matlock from Shirebrook Town in March 2009 and has grown in stature season upon season to become one of the best defenders in the Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division. He was made club captain last season and if all goes well, Yates will pass through the 400 game mark for the Gladiators during 2017/18.
“Yatesy’s a top, top defender, a hugely popular figure and a great lad who we’re proud to have as our captain,” said joint boss Glenn Kirkwood. “He loves playing for Matlock Town and the fans think the world of him and rightly so, we’re delighted to have him on board again.”
