Lewis Freestone agrees contract extension until 2025

28 July 2022

Defender Lewis Freestone has agreed a contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2024/25 season.

He already had one year remaining in his current deal, but the club have agreed to keep Freestone on at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium for an additional two seasons.

Speaking on his deal today, Freestone was really happy to get the contract over the line.

"I'm really excited for what the future brings. I'm very grateful to the club for putting their faith in me with this new deal," he said. 

"Since I've been here it's been really good and I've felt I have constantly developed."

Freestone, 22, joined the Robins in August, 2020, after leaving Brighton & Hove Albion. Since he has been at Whaddon Road, he has helped the club to the League One title in 2021, and then the clubs' highest-ever finish in the EFL last season. 

"Sometimes I even forget I am young still. It feels like I have been here for ages, but I come in every day and work my hardest, which I'll continue to do so."

The club has lost some senior squad members following the end of last season, however Freestone is more than keen to step up. 

"It's in my character and nature to have a more senior role in the team. Despite my age, I think it's in my personality to be a rolemodel and a little bit of a leader-especially to lads my age because I can always push them on."

Freestone began his career with Peterborough United, and made his professional debut in 2017. He has also been on loan for St Albans City, Guiseley, Nuneaton Borough and Bedford Town, but he has now established himself in the defence for the Robins, either at left wing-back, or along the back three.

You can still buy your tickets to watch Freestone face his former side, Peterborough, this Saturday (3PM KO) at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium. Tickets available at the ticket office and online now.
