Bostwick signs two-year deal with Boro

Midfielder has ‘big future’ in the game - Wallace

MICHAEL Bostwick has signed a new two-year deal with Boro.

The midfielder was one of Boro’s best performers during the club’s title-winning campaign last season but his contract was up and although the 22-year-old had attracted interested from two League One clubs he has decided to stay on at the Lamex Stadium.

The news will be warmly welcomed by Boro fans as the midfielder, who played 50 times for the club last season scoring seven times, is seen as the team’s main player in the middle of the park.

Speaking about the midfielder’s decision to stay, chairman Phil Wallace told the club’s website: “Michael had firm offers from two League One clubs and the club opened negotiations for compensation with both last week, but we never gave up trying to persuade him to stay.

“We believe he will continue to improve and be an important player for us next season in League Two.

“We made him a good offer to sign a new deal in line with our pay structure and we’ve not moved from that position.
