Ryan Boot the latest to extend his future with the Moors

Solihull Editorial 15th Feb, 2019   0

SOLIHULL goalkeeper Ryan Boot has committed his future to the Moors after extending his contract until the end of the 2019/20 season.

He joins Tyrone Williams and Liam Daly in penning new deals at the club, and has featured in every minute of the club’s National League campaign to date – keeping 15 clean sheets in the process.

A free transfer to the club in the summer, Boot has been an instrumental part of the club’s success this season.

The 24-year old spoke of his delight to sign the new deal, and vowed to keep putting in the work to maintain the club’s position at the summit of the league table.

“I’m really pleased, it was a no brainer to be honest. I’ve really enjoyed my time here since coming in at the start of the season.

“I settled in straight away. We’ve got a great group of players here and I’m really enjoying it. From the start of the season until now, we’ve been absolutely brilliant. I can’t fault anyone.

“We’ve got to keep plugging away and keep picking up the points as we go along.”

Moors boss Tim Flowers echoed the sentiments of the club towards the first-choice keeper, and admitted he has delivered exactly what they were expecting of him when bringing him in during the summer.

“We had no hesitation to bring Ryan in during the summer. We had Max O’Leary last season and they were big boots to fill because Max was outstanding for us,” said Flowers.

“The biggest compliment I can pay Ryan is that he’s done just that – we felt that it would be a big hole to fill and he’s filled it.

“He’s kicked on from the very first game of the season at Eastleigh where he turned in a Man of the Match performance by a long chalk. He basically won us the game single handily down there.

“He’s maintained his standards ever since. He’s made big saves for us in big games, he’s won us points and we’re delighted to have secured him for next season.”
