Jay Lynch Pens New Deal

19 June 2021

We are delighted to announce that Jay Lynch has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

The goalkeeper joined the club in August 2019 and has made 32 appearances in a Dale shirt so far.

Lynch earned the starting spot for Dale’s final nine games of last season, keeping three clean sheets.

“I’m delighted to finally get it over the line,” said the 28-year-old.

“Talks have been going on for a while now, but I’m glad my deal is done. I can focus on working towards a good pre-season and hopefully a good season for everyone.

“Ever since missing out on staying up by one point last season, it’s been burning away at myself, and I’m sure it has with the other lads too.

“I think if we keep the core of the group together, and with a few additions, I do believe that we should be up there challenging for promotion.

“During the two years so far I’ve had to be patient. We’ve had two great goalkeepers on loan from Premier League clubs so it was all about patience.

“My moment came towards the end of the season, which coincided with a good run. I felt like I’d done enough to stay in the team and hopefully I can do enough to stay in the team this year and have a successful season.”

Congratulations, Jay!
