10th July 2019
Congratulations to client Chris Wilder and his backroom staff who have signed contract extensions at Sheffield United.
Chris joined The Blades in 2016 and has led the Club to two promotions in three years.
Sheffield United gained promotion from the Championship last season- a second place finish behind Champions, Norwich, seeing the Club return to the top flight of English football for the first time in twelve years.
This week, Chris has signed a new three-year deal at the Club and is excited to begin work in the Premier League.
Chris’s backroom staff have also signed extended deals. His team includes Assistant Manager Alan Knill, Goalkeeping Coach Darren Ward, Head of Sports Science and First Team Coach Matthew Prestridge, Head of Recruitment Paul Mitchell and Performance Analyst Mike Allen.
New Era director Pete Smith has joined Chris and his team in Portugal as they begin their preparations for the season ahead.
New Era are delighted to have negotiated new contracts for the team at Sheffield United and wish them all the best for the upcoming season in the Premier League.
In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 and in line with the government recommendations, New Era have temporarily closed our offices in London Bridge and Belfast until further notice.
Our staff continue to work from home and are available by telephone, both on the New Era landline number, 02073780118 and their personal mobile phone numbers. As usual, they are also contactable by email.
All at New Era would like to reaffirm our ongoing commitment to our clients and reiterate that this has not changed, despite the current circumstances. To all of our players, please do contact your intermediaries as normal and for additional support and advice during this time.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our offices when conditions allow and hope you continue to stay safe and healthy.
Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and we urge everyone to take heed of the government recommendations and to stay safe during this challenging time.
