League Two side Cambridge United have confirmed on their official website that defender Leon Legge has triggered a clause in his contract to extend his stay at the club until the summer of 2018.
The 31-year-old joined the U’s in 2015 after being released by League One outfit Gillingham and enjoyed an impressive first season at Cambridge, having picked up the club’s Player of the Season award for the 2015/16 campaign.
Legge has made 59 appearances for Shaun Derry’s team since his arrival last year, with six goals to his name at United as well, and has picked up the captain’s armband this season.
The centre-back’s contract was due to expire next summer but it seems his performances has earned him an extra year. Leon Legge scored one of Cambridge United’s goals in their 4-2 FA Cup first round replay victory at Dover Athletic on Thursday.
Upon the news, the defender said; ”I’m really pleased to have been able to extend my time here, because I have settled in quickly and love playing football at Cambridge United”.
