James signs up for another three years

Even before setting off for Ballinamallard last Saturday, Glenavon were already on a winner with James Singleton putting pen to a new three year contract.

The 19-year-old fullback marked his new deal with another solid performance.

“I am enjoying my football at Glenavon and I’m delighted to sign on for another three years,” said James.

“Two years ago when I broke into the first team we were down at the wrong end of the table.

“Last season we won the Irish Cup, finished in the top six and hopefully this year we can push for fifth. We are getting better each season and hopefully over the next few seasons we will continue that trend and maybe win some more silverware.”

Manager Gary Hamilton has said he feels James will develop into a super midfielder.

“The manager has spoken to me about that. I have played in midfield before at junior level so if I get the chance I’ll take it. Be it full back or midfield I’m happy in either position.”

Rhys Marshall, who missed Saturday’s game because of suspension, has also agreed a new contract, another boost for the club.
