Youngsters agrees contract extension...

THE SADDLERS have agreed a new deal with James Baxendale.

The talented 20 year-old has put pen-to-paper on a new 18-month contract following an impressive start to his Banks’s Stadium career.

Coming through the ranks at Leeds United, his next port of call was Doncaster Rovers.

After a loan spell at Hereford United last term, he became one of Dean Smith’s summer signings following his release from the Keepmoat Stadium.

“James has displayed outstanding character and showed us exactly what he is capable of,” said Smith. “He’s had a good run in the team and scored some impressive goals so far.

“He’s a great personality and has a real zest for football. It’s a pleasure to have him around the place and I am delighted that he has agreed this new deal as he is a great prospect.”

Baxendale added: “This is a good club and I am really enjoying my time here. I feel that my game has developed well in the short time that I have been here already and now I want to really kick-on.

“The spirit around the place, from the manager down, is excellent and I am pleased to have signed this new deal. I am extremely excited about what the future holds in store here.”
