Mildenhall Town secure youngster Ben Nolan to new contract




One of Mildenhall Town's most talented young players – Ben Nolan – has signed a new 12-month contract with the club.

The pacey attacker has established himself as a key member of the first-team squad at Recreation Way since making his debut during the 2018/19 season, when the club was playing at Step 4.

Manager Ricky Cornish is 'delighted' that the 21-year-old has committed his future to Mildenhall – and is expecting big things from him during the upcoming 2021/22 Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division campaign.

"We are delighted that Benny has agreed another one-year contract," said Cornish, who has added Darryl Coakley, Natty Stewart, Josh Pope and Ryan Yallop to his squad this summer.

"He’s maturing all the time and we are looking for him to force his way into the starting 11.

"He’s looked really sharp in training and there’s always a real buzz of excitement when he goes on these mazy runs. We are looking forward to seeing him again in Hall colours next season – it's a big one for him."
