DAMIEN McCrory has signed a new one-year deal with Burton Albion.
The 28-year-old defender is the longest-serving player at the club having joined the Brewers in June 2012 after leaving Dagenham and Redbridge.
Brewers manager Nigel Clough said: “We were keen to keep him, and he was keen to stay. He had a mixed, difficult season with injuries last year and now he needs to work all summer, come back and get back to playing good football consistently week-in, week-out. He needs to put his knee and shoulder problems behind him and really get started.
“In League One we are looking for him to be a mainstay of the team. He was regarded as one of the best left backs in League One a couple of season ago and that was a major factor in his staying.”
McCrory said: “It was something I always wanted to do coming to the end of last season and I’m happy I have had the opportunity to sign a new contract and I can now look forward to next season.
“All of the highlights of my career have come at Burton Albion and I’m very grateful for that and next season will be my seventh here and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time and hopefully we can have many more good times together."
