Sears Signs New Deal
Wednesday, 31st Jul 2019 11:00
Striker Freddie Sears has signed a new Blues deal which will keep him at Portman Road until the summer of 2021 with the club having an option for a further season.
Town took up a one-year option in the 29-year-old’s previous contract in December but now the two parties have agreed a longer-term new deal.
Sears, who is expected to return from his ACL injury in November, joined the Blues from Colchester United for £200,000 in January 2015.
The Hornchurch-born striker or wideman has scored 30 goals in 130 starts and 46 sub appearances for the Blues.

Maybe Evans have learnt a lesson when it comes to players contracts not running out.
Now I just hope that we see a few quality additions to the squad as well.

GOOD WORK FREDDIE
I still think you've got a lot to offer in a Town shirt and were desperately unlucky with that injury at Carrot Road
Look forward to seeing you back in NOV

Continue the good physical progress Freddie ; get back on that pitch ,we love your enthusiasm and energy and you’ll be a real threat and key cog again !

There’s Only one Freddie Sears, One Freddie Sears

The only player left with a mass of experience and quality to go with it.
And cant return soon enough. IMO.

Great news..shame he’s not fit for the opening few months but will be like a new signing come November/December.
|Nobbysnuts added 11:23 - Jul 31|
He would be stupid not to taken up the offer with that injury. No one else would of touched him.

Freddie Sears - a true Blue!
|DebsyAngel added 11:34 - Jul 31|
Excellent news - hope he will be back to full fitness soon. We need his goals!!

Norwood and Sears, up top and not on left, is something I would love to see and League 1 defences will hate to see! Great news, get well soon Freddie.

Richly deserved and has done everything he has been asked for the good of the team without quibble. This contract is a good incentive to keep him going until he is pushing for a place in the starting line-up come November. Well done Freddie!

Good news...should be a good player at this level, one of the few positive notes of last season.
|blueinscotland added 12:20 - Jul 31|
For me the only Town player who can truly say he tried his hardest last season. Think League One is the perfect level for him and can’t wait to see him back on the pitch.

I assume by this the long term plan is Norwood Jackson Sears as a front three with pace on the sides.
|ThatMuhrenCross added 12:39 - Jul 31|
Imagine our striking options being Norwood, Sears, Jackson and a new big physical target man. We'd have everything we need at this level!

Very good news indeed - Will give us a huge boost
on his return
|nathitfc89 added 13:20 - Jul 31|
excellent news. now he has to repay us by firing us back into the championship (when he is fit)
|Dozzells_Bobblehat added 13:21 - Jul 31|
The only good thing about his injury is it will be like a new signing when he comes back . Think he will stand out in League 1.
|BlueMachines added 13:30 - Jul 31|
Let’s hope he manages to fully recover. Very odd time to agree a new deal when there is no guarantee that he will be able to play again. ACL injuries can’t be career ending. Fingers crossed he makes it back as he cannot be faulted for effort.

Good news. Loyal player, and not a tattoo in sight. I assume the physios have monitored his injury and that things are progressing well. A fit FS will be a big asset in League 1.
