INJURED CONLON BOOSTED BY DEAL AT BORO
TOM Conlon is out to repay the faith shown in him by Stevenage by signing a new and improved contract at Broadhall Way.
The 21-year-old midfielder initially joined Boro on loan from Peterborough United in September 2014, before joining the club permanently in January 2015, making 35 appearances last season.
However, Conlon sustained a cruciate knee ligament injury in August and hasn’t played since, but Boro have still rewarded him with a new undisclosed-terms deal.
“I am delighted. Obviously, this season hasn’t gone as I would have liked but the club have shown a lot of belief in me and I want to repay that by signing this contract and staying with Stevenage,” said Conlon.
“I have been here a few years now and really enjoyed my time but I know I have a lot more to show and can’t wait to do so.
“It has been tough. Being out for eight months is hard for any player, but I feel as though I have dealt with it the best I can.
“I have got what I can out of it. I have stayed positive, worked in the gym, and it is finally coming to an end.
“I have been eased back into training and will hopefully be back with the lads fully next week.
“It has been brilliant being back out there again.
“The club have been really, really good to me.
“I saw the gaffer (Darren Sarll) was saying in the press that they would look after me and it is easy to say that, but for him to follow it through is obviously massive for me.
“It is a nice feeling and I can’t thank the club and management enough.
“Being wanted does a lot for me as a player so I am looking forward to justifying their decision.”
GRATEFUL: Tom Conlon
