Despite huge interest in him last season and during this current break, goalkeeper Aiden Prall has committed his services to Sheppey United by signing a contract and is already looking forward to getting going again.
Aiden joined the Ites last summer after a spell at Corinthian. He hit the ground running and would regularly be the supporters top vote in man of the match awards. In all, Aiden played 47 games for the Ites – with Margate away in the Kent Senior Cup the only game he didn’t start. 12 clean sheets, 8 supporters man of the match awards and even an assist v Ramsgate shows how important Aiden is to the club.
On signing a new deal, Aiden said, “I’m delighted to have agreed a deal to stay with Sheppey United, and I’m already looking forward to returning to pre-season.
“We finished last season very strongly, and now we’ve set that benchmark we will look to improve on that.
“The setup, support, and everything about the club is one of the best you’ll find at this level, so my decision was quite an easy one.
“The supporters have been great. They support us really well home and away, and I can’t wait to see them all again soon – I hope they’re enjoying their little break”
This was a key deal to complete for Manager Jack Midson, who added, “Aiden loves it here, and we very much love Aiden too – this deal was one of my top priorities to conclude quickly.
“It’s no surprise that there was a lot of interest in Aiden last season, and despite him having offers to move elsewhere he kept turning them down, which further demonstrates his loyalty and believes in what we want to do at this club.
“Aiden signing a contract is big news for us all and a statement to what we want to do next season as we look to push on further.”
Aiden will wear shirt no.1 next season.
