TONY Gray has signed an extension to his contract which will keep him at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium until the end of season 2017/18.

The 32-year-old striker put pen to paper on the deal before training tonight and said: "I'm made up to sign the new contract.

"I've found playing for the club in the Welsh Premier League really good, the surfaces have been much better with the 3G, you don't get some of the pitches that I've been used to playing on, and obviously I've scored goals which is always going to make it more enjoyable."

After scoring 20 goals in the Conference for a struggling AFC Telford side, Gray was a summmer 2015 signing for the Wingmakers and proved an instant success, notching 18 league goals in his first campaign to break the Airbus club scoring record for goals in a season.

Gray missed out on the WPL Golden Boot to Chris Venables of Aberystwyth but was nominated for Welsh Premier player of the season and picked-up a hat-trick of awards after being named the Airbus supporters', players' and manager's player of the season at the club's end-of-season awards.

This season he already has seven goals from nine games as he closes in on all-time leading club scorer James McIntosh. 

As far as the remainder of the season goes, Gray says "We started off with a good win against Cardiff Met but then went on a poor run and were just looking for that win, then we got a draw and another win and now we've got them we can push on, we'll take each game as it comes and see where that takes us."

Also signing a contract was Jake Hulley, the 19-year-old midfielder who joined the club on non-contract terms this summer.

Liverpool-born Jake was with Tranmere Rovers as a youth and was a regular member of the Under-18s before joining the Wingmakers.
