WIDE man Mauro Vilhete is one of three players who have committed their immediate futures to Barnet by signing long-term contract extensions with the club.
Vilhete, 23, was joined in putting pen to paper on new deals by talented teenagers Jack Taylor and Nana Kyei, and he is relishing the prospect of adding to his total of almost 150 appearances for the club.
“I’m really looking forward to pushing on and hopefully getting promotion with the team,” Vilhete said. “I think I’ve been doing quite well recently, but I’m trying to make sure that I keep playing at that level consistently.
“We managed to win on Tuesday, so now everyone just wants to keep going and to win as many games as we can until the end of the season.”
Taylor, 18, said: “I’m happy to finalise everything so that I can really step on from here. I’m looking to gradually become more confident as a player, score more goals and generally help the team player better overall.
“I was pleased to break into the starting line-up for a few games, but then it’s been a slight downer with my recent injury.
“I’m sure that I’m going to come back stronger though, and will soon be ready to start playing well again.”
Kyei, 19, added: “I’m very happy to sign a new deal – it’s always good to get it out of the way and focus on playing football again. It’s been pleasing to play for the first team in recent weeks.
“I think I’ve been doing alright and I really want to kick on now. I want to play as well as I can over the coming months – to try and get into the team every week, score goals and win games.”
