Gloucester City are happy to announce that striker Adam Mann has signed a contract to remain at the club for the 2014/15 campaign.\r\n\r\nMann, who was a product of the Tigers youth system, made his debut in 2010 and has since appeared over 100 times for the club.\r\n\r\nHe rejoined City midway through last season after an epic FA Cup run with Shortwood United and has been remoulded from a winger into a striker under manager Tim Harris.\r\n\r\nAfter an affluent end to last season, Mann is eager to get underway again.\r\n\r\n“There is a great deal of positivity around the club at the moment, it’s bouncing, and I’m really excited for next season,” Mann said.\r\n\r\n“My aim is to become the main goalscoring threat for the club; I need to hit the ground running and set myself goals and targets.”\r\n\r\n“Last season, in the latter stages, we showed how good we are as a unit and I’m sure we’d all love to progress as far as we can, but consistency is the key.\r\n\r\n“The players want to be here and play under Tim, there’s a new outlook that has been instilled and it is massive for us.”\r\n\r\nCity manager Tim Harris is thrilled that Mann has agreed to stay with the club and is looking for more of the same desire from the forward.\r\n\r\n“It’s vitally important as a football club that we protect our major assets, and that’s what we’re doing with Adam by signing him on contract.”\r\n\r\n“Adam was excellent for us last season and has progressed hugely as a footballer, which showed with the interest from Kidderminster Harriers.\r\n\r\n“He shows the desire that I want from all players at the club and he has a very bright future in the game and it’s important that we continue to aid his football development.”\r\n\r\nThe Tigers will kick off their pre-season against Cinderford Town on July 15th, before hosting Newport County, Bristol Rovers and Hereford United.
