Wilbraham pens one-year extension

Aaron Wilbraham has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract at Ashton Gate.

The big striker, 37, has extended his stay with the club for a fourth season, having joined in the summer of 2014.

During his time with the club, Wilbraham has made 126 appearances, scoring 34 goals.

Head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: “I’m really pleased that Alby will remain with us for this season at least.

”His personality and positive influence, both on and off the pitch, is greatly valued.

Wilbraham was top scorer as City won the League One title and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in his first campaign with the club.

He took over the captain’s armband in the Sky Bet Championship and continues to provide vital experience and leadership in the dressing room.

The Knutsford-born forward has also won promotion with Hull City, MK Dons, Norwich City and Crystal Palace throughout his 20-year playing career.

Crucially his new deal in BS3 includes non-playing responsibilities.

"Alby's personality and positive influence, both on and off the pitch, is greatly valued."
