JFC signs new deal
Jake Forster-Caskey will become the first reigning Player of the Year to play the following season since Ricky Holmes in 2016/17…. although he was flogged in the January.
JFC signed a one-year deal today, which includes the option of a second year and is currently rehabilitating following a second ACL injury in his time at Charlton.
JFC was excellent last season until he was injured in the second-last game. He made 36 appearances, scoring 6 goals.
It’s nice to hear that whilst recovering from injury he will be involved in the coaching of the club’s younger players. It’s another long journey back for Jake, but it is hoped that we will see him return to first team action at the turn of the year.
It was noticeable that Thomas Sandgaard was back in town, although he probably has a heavy date for Wednesday night.
I hope the one year deal option is just for us, or we run the risk of paying him only to play the back part of the season and then possibly leave.
