Defender Dean Wells has today signed a new deal with the club keeping him with us for another two years.

Having joined the club from Braintee for a total of £40,000 back in the summer of 2014, he’s become a regular for us, making 57 appearances across all competitions.

The centre half was in the final year of his existing deal but that has now been extended by another 24 months.

Speaking to the Official Site after penning the deal, Wells said it was a no brainer once it was offered.

‘Very pleased to sign, it came out of the blue a bit as I have still got nine months left on this one and when the gaffer called me into his office I thought I could be in trouble here! But we were just talking and he mentioned about the club wanting to offer me a new contract and obviously I am over-the-moon to sign. I enjoy it here, the boys are good and really I love everything about it so it was a no-brainer really.’

Wells went on to say that it’s good for both sides because it gives stability and it means we all know where we stand and can just focus on the football itself moving forward now.

‘It gives both me and the club stability, I always wanted to stay so it was like a two second conversation – we shook hands there and then.’

Having joined us, he has now played more games and minutes than any other player on our books, and he admits that’s something he’s proud of because clearly he’s wanted here.

‘I am fairly proud of that. Touch wood but over my whole career I have never really had a serious injury. I had one four years ago where I was out for six weeks but even then there were loads of games called off so I didn`t miss many! I am generally quite fit and strong; it is always good to have a 50 game season behind you.’

As for the fans and the support he’s received since coming into the Lamex, he went on to add.

‘I think I have a good rapport with the supporters as I am a big football fan myself, as people know. I like to give the supporters my time, reply to their messages etc as it is no skin off my back. At the end of the day they get behind us and pay my wages so I am grateful to them.’
