Barry Town United playmaker Cotterill pens new two-year deal
Barry Town United have announced playmaker Jordan Cotterill has signed a new two-year contract with the Welsh Premier League newcomers.
The former Ely Rangers man has become an influential player in the current Barry squad and has also built a reputation for himself for being somewhat of a free-kick specialist for the Vale of Glamorgan outfit.
His creative spark in the middle of the park was specifically helpful last season as Barry Town United were promoted back to the Welsh Premier League, 13 years after being relegated from the top flight.
Cotterill is also versatile in the fact he can act as a winger or play centrally and has become a big fans favourite amongst the Barry faithful during his time at the club.
The highly-rated midfielder won three awards at the club last season which included him obtaining the manager’s player of the season award from Gavin Chesterfield.
Since making the move from Ely Rangers during the 2012/2013 season, Cotterill has become an instrumental player for Chesterfield’s troops and has 57 goals in 101 games to his name already.
However, he has yet to make his Welsh Premier League debut yet due to injury but returned to training last week and Barry will hope to have him fit soon because of Cotterill being such a key player in the current side.
Commenting after he signed his new contract via the Barry Town United official website, Cotterill was delighted and admitted he is excited to get back to full fitness to make an impact in the Welsh Premier League.
He said: “I’m delighted to have signed a two year deal with the club. I’ve found a home here over the past few seasons.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to full fitness and hopefully making a big impact on the JD Welsh Premier League.”
Manager Gavin Chesterfield also added how the playmaker has matured over the past few seasons and is looking forward to welcoming him back into the squad following his knee surgery.
The Barry Town United manager said: “Jordan has produced consistently over the last couple of seasons and he’s very much earned this deal.
“His style of play is suited to ours and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back into the squad following knee surgery in the not-so-distant future.
“Jordan’s performances and how he has matured over recent seasons make him very much a leader within the squad and I’m delighted to have secured his services for the next two years.”
