BRIGHTON mid­fielder An­drew Crofts says he was re­lieved to be of­fered a oneyear con­tract ex­ten­sion, hav­ing proved his worth since re­turn­ing from a cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in­jury.

The 30-year-old missed the sec­ond half of last sea­son and was sent off 50 min­utes into his first ap­pear­ance in seven months as Brighton lost to Sh­effield Wed­nes­day on the open­ing day of this term.

But the ex-Nor­wich and Gilling­ham man said:“To get re­warded with the ex­tra year is a mas­sive boost for me.

“I’ve worked hard to get back on the pitch. I was fly­ing be­fore the in­jury and hope­fully I’ll get back to that form as quick as I can.”
