Full backs Tom Bender and Ben Herd have both agreed to extend their stays at Clarence Park for another 12 months.

Manager Ian Allinson said: “This shows huge commitment from the two lads and to have them signed-up so soon into the off-season is a huge boost to myself and the club.

“Ben and Tom have been absolutely top class since I’ve been here and although the season didn’t end how we’d have liked, to have the players of their calibre at the club just shows they believe in what we’re trying to achieve and that we’re going in the right direction.”

The boss also revealed they are looking to sign more of last year’s key players.
