Danny Kedwell pleased to extend his stay at Priestfield for a further two years after signing new contract

Danny Kedwell says he is determined to return to pre-season training fitter than ever after signing a new two-year contract.

The striker put pen to paper on Monday afternoon, joining Stuart Nelson in extending his stay at MEMS Priestfield Stadium until the summer of 2016.

Kedwell was the club’s top scorer in his first two seasons, and he was delighted to have secured his future at the club he has supported all his life.

Speaking to the club’s official website he said: “There were a few clubs interested but first I wanted to see what I was getting offered here; they gave me the two year deal and I enjoy playing for the club I support.

“It’s also easier for me just to be here with my family so it was a no brainer really. I love playing here, I’ve had a promotion and stayed up in League One.

“There was a bit of disappointment getting injured in the second half of the season, but in the first I was flying and scored 10 goals before Christmas so I know I would definitely been in and around the 20 mark.

“It only seems like yesterday that I signed for three years.

“It’s gone very quick and when you enjoy it that’s when it does go fast. If you go to clubs and you’re not enjoying it then it does drag out.

“I have some unfinished business and hopefully next season I can start off with a bang again.”
