The Club are pleased to announce that Paul Heatley has signed an extension to his current contract that will see him stay at Seaview until at least the end of the 2022 season.
Paul has been with the Club since 2013 after signing from Carrick Rangers and has played 319 games scoring 164 goals which is outstanding. He has been ever present in the team and has scored some spectacular goals and important goals in his time at the Club none more so that the all important goals in our away win against FK Ekranas in 2014 seeing us qualify and progress for the first time ever in European competition not forgetting this season when he scored two of the three goals away to B36 Torshavn to help us qualify to play Wolves.
His trickery on the wing leaves many defenders baffled as what he will do next and his goal against Glenavon at Seaview just a few weeks ago shows his ability to do what he does best. Off the pitch Paul is willing to help wherever possible and is an all round club man making him a legend among the Crusaders faithful.
Great to have you a bit longer in Red & Black Paul and 400 appearances and 200 goals must surely be a target now.
