Second years Josh Southway and Pat Keary have signed one-year deals with the Pirates while first-year scholar Jamie Lucas put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

"Connor and Sam have made fantastic contributions, and are great personalities, and we wish them well for the future."

Manager Ward joined Matt Harrold and Michael Smith in committing his future to the club last week.
