The 32-year-old, who has made 164 appearances since joining the Reds in 2006, hopes to resume pre-season training after suffering a serious shoulder injury in November that ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

"I'm delighted," Dunbavin told the club's official website. "Obviously last year was full of ups and downs personally.

"The vein of form I was in was the best I've ever played I think, not only for Accrington but in my career, so I was devastated to learn that I was going to miss the rest of the season with the injury.

"It's been a case of just getting on with it, having the operation and getting back to being around the lads and giving them my full backing really.

"It's an honour to play for the club and I'll carry on doing so to the best of my ability."

Dunbavin joins George Miller in committing his future to Stanley after the midfielder signed a new deal last week.

Accrington are currently without a manager following Leam Richardson's decision to team back up with former Reds' boss Paul Cook at Chesterfield.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
