Mitchell Cole has signed a new two-year contract that will keep him at The Lamex Stadium until 2011.

The 23-year-old has been in discussions over a new contract for the past few weeks and a deal was concluded on Monday afternoon.

Chairman Phil Wallace admitted he is delighted to have secured the future of Cole and hopes the former Grays man reaches his full potential under the stewardship of manager Graham Westley.

"Mitch is one of those players that can get you on the edge of your seat when he's on his game," said Wallace. "His pace is electric, his technique outstanding. As a fan I love watching him on the ball and think he's worked really hard this year.
