Toby commits his future to AFC Wimbledon

Young defender rewarded with new deal

10 September 2017

Toby Sibbick has been rewarded for his progress with a new contract at AFC Wimbledon.

The 18-year-old defender, who has made three first-team appearances after progressing through our academy ranks, said that he hopes to run out at Plough Lane in the future after signing the new deal.

Neal Ardley believes that Toby has a good chance of being a part of the club’s future if he keeps learning the game.

“Toby is very athletic, he has good pace, and is technically good too,” said Neal. “He still has loads to learn, but moving forward he could be a real prospect if he keeps developing. Toby is a lad who has done really well and we are very hopeful for him. We have tied Toby up on a new deal after we did the same with Anthony Hartigan. We are looking to the future as well, but we have to get going and make sure that future is in League One.”

Speaking after signing his second professional deal, Toby said: “The manager thought I did really well in pre-season, so he said that he wanted to reward me with a new deal and I was delighted with it. The competition in the first-team is as high as ever, but when we play for the Under-23s we want to give it our all so that Alan Reeves goes back to the manager with positive messages, saying that we can be trusted for the first-team. Hopefully, I can secure a spot and in the long run if we can get back to Plough Lane I will be walking out there.”
