James Gray: New one-year deal

The 20-year-old scored two goals in 16 appearances last term having joined from Kettering at the beginning of the 2012/13 season and was delighted when new manager James Beattie asked him to stay.

Gray said: "He spent hours with me on the training ground last season trying to improve me so I was delighted to hear he wanted to sign me for next season."

He added: "I was pleased with my first season. Next year I won't be an unknown player in the Football League because I'll have that little bit of experience behind me. There will probably be a bit more pressure on me but I can't wait for the season to start."

Gray has also won international recognition at Under-21 level with Northern Ireland and he joins George Miller, Ian Dunbavin, Dean Winnard and Laurence Wilson in agreeing contract extensions with the club.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
