Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce Carl Johnston has signed a new contract with the club.
Johnston – who has been on international duty with Northern Ireland U21s this summer – returned to pre-season training on Monday with the Development Squad and is prepping for a busy July schedule.
The 19-year-old has put pen-to-paper keeping him at the club until the end of the 2022/23 season, with the club holding an option for another year.
Stephen Crainey, Town's Development Squad Head Coach, said: “He’s got a different class of an attitude. He sets himself a high standard every day so he will maintain those standards permanently. He went on loan to Farsley Celtic last season and that did him the world of good so he will come back into pre-season flying.
“He finished the season strongly after his loan spell so hopefully he can take that form into this season as he’s in with a group that all have a chance to threaten the first team, but they will have to maintain those high standards they’ve set in order to do so.”
Congrats on the new contract, CJ!
