Fresh Contract For Hibbert

Fresh Contract For Hibbert

Tony Hibbert has today signed a new two-year contract with the Club.

The defender, 33, had come to the end of his existing deal but will now remain at Goodison Park until at least the summer of 2016.

Hibbert follows fellow right-back Seamus Coleman in agreeing new terms, the Irishman having put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract extension last week.

A product of Everton's youth academy and member of the Toffees' 1998 FA Youth Cup winning side, Hibbert made his first-team debut in a 2-0 win over West Ham United in March 2001 and has gone on to rack up a further 318 appearances. 

Everton's Europa League meeting with AEK Athens in 2009 also saw Hibbert reach 20 outings in European competition and claim a Club record previously held by 1960s stars Brian Labone and Colin Harvey.

As such, the Greeks were invited to Goodison Park in August 2012 to play in the defender's testimonial – a memorable affair which saw him finally net an Everton goal after 11 years and 308 first-team games.

Senior players Leighton Baines, Sylvain Distin and Tim Howard have also signed revised contracts since the turn of the year, while manager Roberto Martinez agreed a fresh five-year deal earlier this month.

Youngster Conor McAleny penned a three-year contract extension on Tuesday.
