DEFENDERS David Mirfin and Andy Holdsworth are convinced Town will make big strides over the next two years.
Both players signed contract extensions today which tie them to the McAlpine until 2007 and are focused on achieving further success in that time.
The Academy products played in Town's play-off final success last term and have been part of a play-off tilt this time which is still not mathematically drained.
Both now want to be part of not only helping Town into the Championship but establishing the club there and Mirfin commented:
"We have already had one promotion and everyone has gained more experience from this campaign, so next season should be one to really look forward to.
"I'm delighted to have signed a new contract extension because I've been with Town since I was 13, I know all the lads here really well and it's a great club to be at.
"Everyone is sticking together and, while I'm sure there will be a few additions to the squad as well, it's great to know we've already got strong competition for places in all areas of the team.
"I think we've shown in the last seven matches what we are capable of at this level and, if we don't get into the play-offs this time, it's important we finish off well and look forward to a positive start to next season."
Mirfin added: "I'm only just turned 20 and at the start of my career, so it's great to know the manager and staff have faith in my ability and I'm sure we are going to go on to even better things.
"The strong competition for places makes it hard work here, but everyone realises the benefits of that and enjoys playing for the club."
The 21-year-old Holdsworth has been with Town for eight years, playing alongside Adnan Ahmed and Anthony Lloyd in the junior teams, and has become a first-team regular under Peter Jackson.
"When you think of all the daft points we've dropped this season we should really be well up in the top six, so I'm very encouraged about the prospects for next season and the next few years," said Holdsworth.
"There are some very exciting times ahead and I'm really pleased to have signed a new deal with the club.
"It was great in my first full season to win a promotion and with the run we are on at the moment, I reckon we are well set to push on from here.
"I think we are a lot better than our current League position shows and I want to stay involved in what is happening at Town.
"I've played a lot of games over the last two seasons, which I'm very happy about and, having come through the ranks here, it would be great if I can help us do even better in the future. That's what we all want."
