Pack Pens Two-Year Deal

Marlon Pack has signed a new two-year contract with Bristol City.

The midfielder, who joined the club on a two-year deal from Cheltenham Town in 2013, will now remain under contract until 2017.

Pack has made 98 appearances in two seasons as a City player, scoring three goals.

“I’m over the moon,” he told bcfc.co.uk. “There was only one place that I wanted to be.

“To spend another two years with the boys and in the city has made me very happy.

“I always wanted to extend and as soon as I came into the final year of my contract it was always the aim for me to get a new one.

“I think I timed my run into the side perfectly, which probably helped me get a new deal.

“When you think about the achievements we had last season and with the new stands coming together, it’s an exciting place to be.”

The 24-year-old was a virtual ever-present in his maiden campaign in BS3 but had to be patient in waiting for his chance last term, such was City’s success.

Pack had more starts in cup competitions than league games until the end of February, but became a mainstay in the side during a hectic run-in, establishing himself as one of Steve Cotterill’s most consistent performers.

City boss Cotterill, who previously worked with Pack at Portsmouth, announced his intentions to secure his future soon after the final game of the season against Walsall.

“Marlon has improved no end since I’ve been at the football club and ended up becoming a very valuable member of the squad,” the manager added.

“He wasn’t in the team at the beginning of last season, but ended up playing all of the games in the run-in and was a major part of the promotion team.

“It was nailed on that we would be offering him a new deal and now we’re hoping he’ll step up to Championship level – a challenge I know he’s looking forward to.”
