Stevenage Football Club have agreed terms with both Luther James-Wildin and Chris Lines to extend their stay at the Club…
Antigua & Barbuda international Luther James-Wildin signed for Stevenage from Nuneaton Town in 2018 and has since made over 100 appearances across three seasons.
The highly rated 23-year-old picked up Stevenage’s Young Player of the Year award in 2019 and has continued to impress at The Lamex Stadium with his willingness to drive forward and support the attack from right-back.
“We are delighted that Luther has chosen to sign a new deal with the football club”, Manager Alex Revell said. “He is an outstanding professional and is someone that has performed to a high-level last season”.
“He has a fantastic energy and enthusiasm, and he constantly strives to learn and improve every day. He is the type of player we want at the Club to drive us forward”.
Terms have also been agreed with experienced midfielder Chris Lines, who signed for Stevenage from Northampton Town in January 2021.
The 35-year-old quickly became a fan favourite in the middle of the park, playing twenty times in Boro’s improved second half of the campaign and picking up three assists and three GCIS Player of the Month nominations.
“Chris has been a hugely influential player both on and off the pitch”, Revell commented. “He adds huge experience for us having already earned three promotions in his career. He brings a calmness and quality to our play, and always wants to improve and work every day to make sure he is in the best condition”.
“Keeping this group of players together was our priority, and with Chris and Luther re-signing we are in a good place. Keeping players together breeds consistency and a togetherness”.
Luther James-Wildin and Chris Lines join up with the Stevenage squad as the players return to Bragbury End for the first week of pre-season training on Monday.
