PHIL Bolland has signed a contract with Cambridge United to the end of the season.

The influential Merseyside-based defender has been on non-contract terms all season in an agreement that suited both him and the club. However, in view of interest from other clubs and the impending deadline for player registrations, the club has protected its interests by offering him a deal to the end of the season, which he signed today.

Manager Gary Brabin believes it is a boost to his squad that the defender has committed to the club for the rest of the campaign, saying: "We've reached a stage of the season now when we need him tied up so we know he's here until the end of the season and we can concentrate on the matches, and I'm delighted that he's signed up.”
