ADAM Mullan is the latest player to agree a new two-year contract extension with the club…
The Limavady defender has committed his future to the Bannsiders until June 2020 and has made 123 appearances for the Stripes since making his debut against Glenavon in March 2013.
The 21-year-old is adaptable at playing across the back four and played a pivotal role in the Bannsiders’ run to the Irish Cup final and European football qualification last season.
Stripes boss Oran Kearney has praised Mullan for his consistency since Christmas and believes he could become a central defender in the long-term.
“Adam was the first quality young player that we brought through and he’s made over 100 appearances already,” Kearney said.
“He has produced a high level of consistency in his performances since Christmas.
“We wanted him to do that and he is hitting seven or eight out of 10 every week.
“He could become a central defender in the future as he has a fantastic footballing brain.”
Mullan admits he is ‘over the moon’ to get his future finalised.
“I am over the moon with the new contract,” Mullan said.
“I am really enjoying my football at the minute and we are going well in the league.
“It is nice to see the other 3 lads commit their futures to the club as well.”
