WELLSY TO STAY LONGER AT BORO
DEAN Wells feared the dreaded hairdryer treatment from boss Teddy Sheringham last week, but ended up with a new contract.
The Stevenage defender has made a fine start to the season, yet he was worried when former Tottenham Hotspur striker Sheringham called him into the manager’s office on Thursday.
However, the 30-year-old will remain a Boro player until the end of the 2017-18 season and Wells is delighted.
“I was very pleased to sign,” said the ex-Braintree man. “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.”
Since joining the club in June 2014, Wells has played more games and more minutes than any other player and he’s very keen to keep that run going.
“I am fairly proud of that,” he added. “I am generally quite fit and strong; it is always good to have a 50-game season behind you.”
