Gordon Connelly Joins Coaching Staff
Wick Academy FC is delighted to confirm that our Captain Sam Mackay and striker Davie Allan have agreed to pledge their future to the club by signing extensions to their current contracts. Sam has signed a 4 year extension and Davie has signed a 2 year extension to their contracts.
Both Sam and Davie have played an integral part in the club's continued development on the field and therefore the Club are delighted with the outcome. They, along with their fellow team mates have shown great commitment to the club over the years and we see them and their team mates as being pivotal to this club in its continued development on the park and these new improved contract extensions are a reward for their hard work and loyalty to the club.
Club Secretary Alan Farquhar comments, "We as a Committee have put a lot of hard work in behind the scenes in developing this club on and off the park and we will continue to do the best for the club and our loyal supporters and hopefully these new contracts emphasises this commitment to the cause".
The Club is also delighted to announce that Gordon Connelly has joined us as a coach. Gordon played for Academy during season 1997/98, making 36 competitive appearances and scoring 15 goals. He was playermanager at Forres, had a short period at Brora and also coached at Ross County.
Manager Barry Wilson is delighted with the news stating, "I am delighted that both Sam and Davie have agreed to extend their contracts with us. It's important that we keep our best players at the Club as it gives us the stability we need in order to progress. Almost all of the players are now on long term contracts however there are a few of the boys who's contracts are also coming up, so I'll be aiming to talk to them all over the next few weeks to also see if I can get them sorted with similar extensions.
As far as Gordon is concerned, I've known him for a number of years and he's a great coach. Both myself and Tichie are delighted that he's agreed to come and join us".
