Ben Reay Signs New Deal

Shildon AFC is delighted to announce that Ben Reay has signed a new contract with the Club until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Shildon AFC Manager, Chris Hughes commented: “We are delighted that Ben has committed to Shildon for the remainder of this season and next.

Since joining us, he has become and important part of how we play. He has contributed with goals and assists from his position wide or centrally. His role out of possession is also key and can often go unnoticed by some.

Ben is the kind of player we will continue to look to recruit. He plays for the team, works really hard, is tactically aware and is very capable on the ball.”

Congratulations on the new deal Ben.

Max Booth Signs Contract with the Railwaymen

Shildon AFC are delighted to announce that Max Booth has signed a contract with the Club (subject to FA approval).

Max will be familiar to Shildon fans having played twice for the first team last season.  He started playing in Teesside Junior Football Alliance League Division 1 with Richmond Town, then moved on to the Darlington youth team.  He was a member of the North Yorkshire county team who got to the semi-finals of two cup competitions.  Max joined the Darlington Academy which he attended for 2 years, playing for the first team in a number of pre-season and cup games.  Whilst at the academy he played for Shildon AFC reserves and during the 2021/22 season stepped up to the Shildon first team.

Jamie Tunstall, Shildon AFC Manager said “Since I came to the club Max has been a topic of conversation a number of times.  He played a couple of times last season and did really well.  We’re delighted that Max has committed to Shildon for next season and I’m hoping he continues to improve and he’ll get opportunities with the first team.  We’re hoping that Max and Matty’s contracts show the young players within the reserves that they can be rewarded and that there will be chances for them.”

Congratulations to Max.
