WELLSY TO STAY LONGER AT BORO

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Jamie Holt

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.”
