JOSH IS WERTH-Y OF A NEW REDS DEAL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Dan Barnes

CRAW­LEY de­fender Josh Yor­w­erth penned new terms with the club last week and is con­fi­dent that the best is still to come, both for him and the Red Devils.

The 22-year-old, who came through the ranks at Cardiff and was signed from Ip­swich, signed a new deal that will keep him with Harry Kewell’s side through to 2020.

And now the for­mer Wales Un­der-21 in­ter­na­tional is looking for­ward to get­ting down to business out on the pitch.

“The new con­tract and the se­cu­rity it brings to me is re­ally nice,” he said.

“But I’m keen to make sure that noth­ing re­ally changes on my part and my game – I want to just keep work­ing hard and pro­duc­ing re­sults on the pitch.

“I’m re­ally happy here now. I think be­ing an im­por­tant part of the side re­ally helps too, that makes you feel com­fort­able and can only ben­e­fit your game.

“Some­times hav­ing an un­cer­tain fu­ture can hang over you, and as a foot­baller you want to be able to pri­mar­ily fo­cus on your game – so I guess you could say that the new deal is a weight off my shoul­ders now.”
