We are delighted to announce that George Nurse has signed a two-year contract extension!
Nursey joined Town in the summer 2021 and was our highest appearance maker in his first season, turning out 53 times in all competitions. The left wing-back also contributed six assists that campaign.
The very talented 24-year-old has since suffered two gutting ACL injuries but has shown incredible maturity when handling such a difficult situation.
Set to return to full fitness at the end of this season, Nursey is targeting a productive off-season and pre-season to ensure he is as ready as he can be for 2024/25.
When speaking about his new contract, Nursey thanked the fanbase for their 'amazing' support throughout his recovery.
George Nurse said:
“I’m really happy. It’s been a tough couple of seasons for me so to get this over the line and cement myself here for a few more years is fantastic for me.
“Obviously, I’ve now sustained two ACL injuries so I want to say a huge thank-you to the Chairman, to Micky Moore and to Matt Taylor for sticking by me. I really appreciate it.
“I’ve also got to thank the fans who have been amazing with me, I’ve received so many messages of support so I want to say a huge thank-you to them.
“In terms of my recovery, it’s going really well. I’m working really hard to get myself back out onto the pitch.
“I’m five months post-op now so I’ve still got a bit to go.
“I probably won’t play until next season but I’m doing everything I can to get myself into the best possible shape.”
Matt Taylor said:
“I’m delighted that George has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2026.
“The one thing we knew would happen with George is that he was going to be tested mentally because it’s the second time he’s had the injury.
“But he’s been really resolute and every day at the training ground he has got a smile on his face.
“This contract is a reward for all his hard work during a really difficult part of his career and it shows just how much we value him as a football club.
“It also shows as a football club we are committed to doing the right thing.
“We look forward to seeing George regain full fitness as the season continues.”
Congratulations, Nursey! We look forward to seeing you back out on the pitch.
