Radcliffe hand contract extensions to five players



Five first team regulars at Radcliffe have signed new contracts that will keep them at Neuven Stadium till the end of the 2024–2025 campaign.

Josh Hancock, Ewan Bange, Jamie Morgan, Jake Thompson, and Luca Navarro have all committed to stay with the Boro, with the possibility of one more year remaining for each player.

The team led by Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley needs just one point to mathematically secure the Northern Premier League title and automatic promotion to the National League North, thus the new agreements come before of Saturday’s trip to Whitby Town.

Arriving from Curzon Ashton last summer, veteran midfielder Hancock has scored 17 goals in 39 games in his debut season, ranking him second in the scoring statistics after Jordan Hulme.

In his last season in the National League North with Curzon, he also scored in double figures. He is almost certain to rejoin his former team in 2024–2025.
Throughout his ten-year career, the 33-year-old has played for teams including Telford, Witton Albion, Salford City, Nantwich Town, and Altrincham.

Forward Bange, who originally joined the team in January 2023 after leaving Blackpool, has also pledged his immediate future to the organization.

Thus far in his stay in Greater Manchester, he has scored seven goals.
Thompson, a wide winger, and Navarro, a forward, are two players that have been with the team for much longer.
While Navarro, who recently scored a 19-minute hat-trick in the team’s 4-0 victory against Matlock Town, first joined in 2020 and has played a significant role for the Boro across two stints, the former has signed to a third season at the Neuven Stadium.

Navarro has amassed over 40 goal contributions, 17 of which have come this season alone, making him a fan favorite.
Morgan, a former Altrincham player who signed from Chester last summer, is the last player to have negotiated terms to stay at the team.
In 35 games, the full-back has scored ten goals and shown his versatility by lining up across the backline when necessary.
Radcliffe is on the verge of earning promotion to Step 2 after winning 27 of their 37 games thus far this season.
If they win this weekend and don’t lose on the road, they will have the title.
