Goalkeeper Signs New Deal With The Seasiders

16 June 2020

Chris Maxwell has extended his contract with Blackpool Football Club until the summer of 2022, with the Club having the option of a further season.

The 29-year-old joined the Seasiders in January from Preston North End on a deal until the end of the season. Chris had made nine appearances before football’s suspension in March, during which time he made a significant impact on the team. The Club is delighted that Chris has agreed to extend his stay at Bloomfield Road for a further two years.

Chris Maxwell said: “I’m delighted to be staying at this great Club for a further two years.

“Since I came to the Club in January, I’ve been welcomed with open arms, and it’s great that my future has been secured at a Club with so much ambition and a real plan in place to progress.

“I’d like to thank Simon Sadler, Ben Mansford and Neil Critchley for showing the faith in me to secure this deal, and I’m really looking forward to continuing what is an exciting journey at this Club.”

Head Coach Neil Critchley said: “In my short period working with Chris he has made a real positive impression on myself and the rest of the staff both as a goalkeeper and as a person.

“His ability, character and experience will be hugely important to us in the next couple of years.

“We are delighted that he has committed his future to Blackpool Football Club and we very much look forward to working with him during this time.”
