Centre-half commits to club

20 May 2016

Defender Krystian Pearce has become the latest member of the Stags' squad to commit his future to the club.

The former Torquay United man joins goalkeeper Brian Jensen, defenders Mal Benning and Lee Collins and midfielders Jamie McGuire, Mitch Rose and Jack Thomas in signing new deals at One Call Stadium. 

Pearce made 36 Sky Bet League 2 starts during the 2015-16 campaign where he showcased both his defensive ability and his calmness in possession whilst bringing the ball out of defence.

The Birmingham City youth product has international honours after representing England at under 17 and under 19 level, before enjoying spells at Notts County, Huddersfield Town and Scunthorpe United, amongst others.

After putting pen-to-paper on his new contract, Pearce described his pleasure at securing his future for next season.

"I’m just happy to be signing again because I believe in the squad and what the gaffer’s (Adam Murray) trying to do here," Pearce said.

"Obviously the gaffer’s always said to me that I’m a big part of his plans which is obviously a major reason why I want to be here next season and, in fact, even the chairman said to me after one of the games that he wants me to be here next season so that was always good to hear from obviously the chairman and the gaffer."

The 26-year-old has enjoyed working under boss Adam Murray and hopes that the squad develop further under his guidance next season.

"He’s a very good coach and obviously he’s had a whole new group and he’s made them mould quite quickly and as you’ve seen, we’ve all thrived under him so it’s only going to be even better next season."

The new deal is subject to Football League approval and will start from 01 July 2016.
