Scott Duxbury has today committed his future to Stockport County after signing an extended contract with the club.
The 22-year-old has made 36 appearances so far this term and has been one of the mainstays of the team during the campaign.
The new deal will see the left-back stay with the Hatters until at least the end of the 2018/19 season, and manager Jim Gannon was keen to stress the defender’s importance to the side for the long-term.
“Given his age, ability, athleticism and attitude to giving full-time football a go, it was an easy decision to invest further in Scott”, Gannon told COWS earlier today.
“Scott, like many of our young players is approaching a great age in terms of learning and maturing. I feel he is only small steps away from achieving an understanding and application in different types of games that will see his consistency improve and effectiveness increase.”
The news of Duxbury signing comes off the back of recent talks which have seen Ben Hinchliffe, Matty Warburton, Dan Cowan and Adam Thomas all commit to the club since the start of 2018.
