Jet-heeled Pattenden, 24, signed for the Rocks last Summer from Littlehampton Town and has been a huge hit for Robbie Blake’s men since his arrival. And his fantastic form down the right has prompted the club to secure his services on an 18-month contract. Pattenden, who has won five man-of-the-match awards so far this season, says he couldn’t be more delighted to commit his immediate future to the MKM Arena outfit. He said: “It really was a no brainer for me and I’m happy to sign. The lads are great, the supporters are too and there is so much to like about being a part of what’s happening at the club. We’re a young squad and the hope is that we continue to grow and develop together.” Boss Blake says Pattenden has all the qualities to play a major part in his side’s progress.  He said: “Patto has come in and been excellent for us. He has pace in abundance and is direct and defenders don’t like that one bit. He has a great attitude and is willing to soak up what we ask of him and turn that in to attacking play from which we can benefit as a team. It’s great he has signed and now  the challenge is for him to continue to improve, which we obviously feel he can do.”
