Sam Baird and Mike Jones extend their contracts until May 2019

We are delighted to announce that Sam Baird and Mike Jones have both extended their contracts with the club until the end of the 2018/19 season following impressive performances in FC United’s First Team.



The pair both signed first team forms in November 2016 with defender Sam Baird (18) making his first team debut away at Stalybridge on 12th November 2016. Last season Baird made seven first team appearances. Baird has started in the last five matches for the reds since Tom Greaves took charge of first team affairs.

Midlfielder Mike Jones (19) made his first team debut in the Manchester Premier Cup away at Abbey Hey on 16th November 2016. His next two first team appearances as a substitute came in the last two league matches of the season.

This season Jones was in the starting XI in the first match of the season away at Brackley but didn’t feature again until the FA Cup Replay at home to Stockport County, coming on as a half-time substitute. Since Tom Greaves has been in charge Jones has featured in six of seven matches, missing the Alfreton home match through injury.

Mike Jones and Sam Baird joins Lloyd Allinson and Steven Affleck, as players who are now contracted at the club until May 2019.
