Gordon Greer has revealed he didn’t find agreeing to a permanent deal at the County Ground difficult, and can’t wait to continue his love affair with Town on the pitch next season.

The defender, who was a huge hit with the Town faithful during his loan spell at the back end of last season, will stay at the club until the summer of 2011 under the terms of his new deal.

“This was a great opportunity for me, so it was an easy decision,” revealed the Scot.

“Obviously I had a really good spell here and enjoyed working with the manager and the players.

”I think the club’s going in the right direction, it’s a really professional club, the manager’s a really professional person and for me, that’s what is a big factor.

“I wouldn’t like to go somewhere where the club never aspired to do better. This club are definitely aspiring to do better and I think we can do that.”

The 28-year-old was pursued by a number of suitors on both sides of the border after he was released by former club Doncaster Rovers last week, but said he always had his heart set on a move to Town.

“I had a few offers in Scotland and I had a few offers in England but I wasn’t really tempted as such,” he said.

“It’s good to have offers because as a footballer, this is your job and you need to earn money.

“But I wanted to come back and when I spoke to the manager he was saying he was going to bring in a few players, so I’m excited to be here and looking forward to the season.

“I’ve got no doubts, I feel this is the right place for me.”

Greer said that Town manager Danny Wilson had been a major contributor to his decision to stay in Wiltshire.

“It’s a big factor. He’s a very good manager and he’s been around,” said Greer.

“The chance to come down and work with him was a big incentive for me.

“Next year, with the manager I think it’ll be a big summer for the club.

“I think there will be a few new faces coming in and hopefully next year we can gel really well and push up that table.”
