Simon has been a regular starter for the Sky Bet League One club this season, having made over 40 starts in all competitions to date.
“He needed a run of games as first choice and has taken that opportunity and got better and better as the season has gone on.” Matt Kleinman – Sidekick Management
Matt Kleinman was pleased for his client and said the new contract was a result of Simon’s hard work and dedication “this contract is much deserved and Simon was always keen to stay as he sees a bright future under manager Michael Appleton”.
“I’m really happy to have got it all sorted and be committing my future to the club,” said Simon, “I have a young family so you are always looking for a bit of security for the future but it was all very straightforward because I feel as though this is a club on the up at the moment and I want to be a part of that over the next few years.”
Appleton was full of praise for his goalkeeper “Obviously I rate Easty – I’ve signed him three times now! He needed a run of games as first choice and has taken that opportunity and got better and better as the season has gone on. He is still fairly young in terms of goalkeepers and I am sure there is still more to come from him.”
