Gavan Holohan has admitted his delight after putting pen to paper on a new contract to keep him at Victoria Park until the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The midfield star arrived at the Club last February and has become a real fans favourite in the twelve months since as he earned a regular spot in the Pools engine room.
Boss Dave Challinor has opened talks with a number of his key players in recent weeks and Holohan has now become the first to seal a deal and commit his future to the Club.
“I’m delighted to get it done – it’s been in the pipeline for a few weeks so I’m pleased to get it over the line,” Holohan told Pools TV.
“It shows the Manager’s intent for next season that he wants to get people tied down so once I knew there was interest in getting something done I was delighted to do it as quickly as possible.
“I feel like I have come a long way in a year and this shows the faith the Club has in me so I really appreciate it and I hope to repay it over the next couple of years.
“I know where I’m going to be now and I can really look forward and kick-on.
“The way my career has gone, I have been looking for somewhere I can call home and I feel like I have found that here so I am delighted to extend my stay.”
