SAM Lavelle has signed a new Shrimps’ contract.
The defender, who has been one of the club’s most consistent performers over the past two seasons has signed a deal until the end of 2022 much to the delight of boss Jim Bentley.
He said: “It’s great news and I’m pleased to have him on board for the next couple of years.
“Sam has come on in leaps and bounds and is just getting better and better all the time.
“He works hard and is great to have around and he wants to do well so we are delighted with the news.''
Sam said he was pleased to commit his immediate future to the club.
He said: "I’ve said in the past I have a lot to repay the gaffer and the club for.
"They gave me my debut and have developed me as a player. I’m coming up to 100 games soon and they have given me a platform and I hope I have paid them back and established myself as a League 2 player.
"The gaffer keeps saying he has rewarded me for what I have achieved so far.
"We have been discussing it for a while but I’m glad to get it sorted and I’m looking forward to the game on Saturday.''
