Prescot Cables are delighted to announce that Mitchell Allen has committed his future to the club by signing a one-year contract with the club.

Mitch has been the standout player of the season so far and the club believe that he has a huge future in the game and that he should be rewarded for some exceptional performances since joining the club in August 2020.

The deal, which will run until the end of this season, also has the option of a second year included, should the club wish to activate that option.

Since coming to the club, Manager Kevin Lynch has been impressed with Mitch’s displays and said this, “Mitch is absolutely first class in everything that he does, be that his attitude in training or his performances on the pitch in games. We believe that the sky is the limit for what he can achieve in the game.  This deal shows that after a difficult period, the club is now looking to kick on by attracting and investing in the best talent.  I want this to be the start of something at Cables and this deal is a statement of intent by the club to kick on to bigger and better things.“

The goalkeeper himself has said this of his decision to commit to the club long term “It’s a great feeling, I’ve really enjoyed my time since joining Prescot and I’m grateful that the club want that to continue. The gaffer has been hugely influential in me extending my stay here, he has a vision of where he wants to take the club in the next few years and I’m excited to be a part of that. I’d also like to mention the fans who are the best I’ve ever played in front of and I’m so happy to be able to carry on doing that each week!

We’ve had a turbulent start to the season but with Kev’s vision and the new players we can start to turn this around. Tuesday night was an example of how hard we have been working and that showed scoring late on. As I mentioned The gaffa wants to take this club up the leagues in the next few years and I believe with the fan base and set up we have this is definitely achievable.”
