Mansfield Town winger CJ Hamilton has signed a new incentive-based two-year deal with the Stags following an impressive season to date.
The 23-year old, who signed from Sheffield United in the summer of 2016, has recorded nine assists in 39 appearances in all competitions this term.
The club also retains an option to extend the contract upon its expiration.
Brimming with delight after putting pen to paper, Hamilton told the club: “I really am thrilled to be signing a new deal.
“The fans have been brilliant and the staff have been so welcoming. This club is like a family to me.
“I think I can only get better. I want to produce a lot more for the club.”
Hamilton becomes the first player to sign a new deal under manager David Flitcroft, of whom the winger said: “He’s been helping me so much on and off the pitch, putting an arm round me when needed. His management towards me has been tremendous.
“Since the new gaffer has come in he’s helped me so much. We do extra one-to-one sessions. He’s getting me to the byline and makes me pick out areas. He shows me which areas I should be hitting, and shows me the different options.
“Ever since he’s come in he wanted to work with me. We’re out there two or three times a week now just me and him.
“This contract makes me even hungrier to do well for the team. I want a lot more goals and assists for the team, as well as continuing to work hard on my defensive duties.”
The Stags go to Yeovil in League 2 tomorrow knowing anything but a win could put pay to their playoff hopes for this season, they're three points behind Coventry with two games to go.
