COLIN Daniel has signed a new one-year deal with the Brewers, taking a substantial wage cut to stay at the club.
The left-sided defender has made 36 starts for the Brewers, including 7 assists, since joining the club from Peterborough in January 2019. Daniel has now penned a new deal to stay at the Pirelli Stadium and will be part of manager Jake Buxton’s plans for the 2020/21 season.
The 32-year-old, who counts Macclesfield, Mansfield, Port Vale and Blackpool among his previous clubs, expressed his delight to have signed a new deal and cannot wait for the new campaign to get underway. He said: I am buzzing to be staying at the club and cannot wait for the football to get back started.
“It’s been a tough number of months without football, but I’m really excited to get back playing and working under the new manager.
Buxton is happy to see another familiar face staying at the club and believes that it is another positive message to the players and the fans. He said: “We’re happy that Colin has signed a new deal and I think it shows to everyone that a lot of players want to stay and play their football here.
“His Football League experience speaks for itself and since arriving, his availability for selection has been brilliant, chipping in with a number of assists.
“He’s another player that we can utilise in a number of positions and I back myself to get the best out of him. It’s great to have him back!”
