Toots Extends Contract By Another Year

Matt Tootle has signed a years extension to his contract meaning his contract will now not expire until summer of 2014. It's a bit of a surprise the club have extended a deal that still had three years to run but shows Dario's intent on trying to keep the club's youngsters for as long as possible.
