Attacker signs extension to current deal to stay at Highbury until next summer

4 March 2019

Fleetwood Town are pleased to announce that attacker Gerard Garner has signed a new contract with the club.

Garner – who made his EFL debut for the club on Saturday against Gillingham – has penned a further one-year extension on his current contract, with the club holding the option for a further year in the summer of 2020.

The 20-year-old has been with the club since 2017, coming through the club’s Under 18s side before spending time on loan at Southport and FC United of Manchester last season.

Head coach Joey Barton said upon Garner signing a new deal: “We’re really pleased to see Ged sign a new deal at Fleetwood Town.

“He’s got really good qualities and it’s been good to see him develop alongside a number of young players we have in and around the first team. We have an exciting core of younger players such as Nathan Sheron, Harrison Biggins, Ryan Rydel, James Hill and Harrison Holgate, and Ged is very much part of that.

“There’s a lot of work ahead for Ged and he’s aware of that, but he’s at the right club to help him continue his development as a player and as a person.”
