Brown Signs Contract Extension

Lee Brown has this morning completed the signing of a new contract at Rovers, keeping him at the club for a further year until 2014.

The left back, who is equally at home in left midfield, has committed his future to the club having originally signed last summer following his release from Queens Park Rangers after their promotion to the Premier League. He made a number of appearances during the 2011-2012 season and scored 7 goals, including a superb cross-cum-shot away at Crawley Town. He grew in stature throughout the year and he now admits he felt like one of the more seasoned professionals at the club during the game against the Royal Marines last weekend as, despite only being 21 years old, the majority of the side were under the age of 20.

Mark McGhee has explained that he feels Brown has a big part to play for the club next year but hasn't decided whether to exploit his goal-scoring ability in midfield or at left back - his preferred position.

Gasheads quickly formed a good rapport with Brown for his consistent displays and will undoubtedly be delighted to hear he'll remain a Rovers player for at least another 2 years.

Edit: It was confirmed alongside this news that Danny Woodards had officially signed his 1 year option with the club and will remain a Rovers player until 2013 at least.
