Michael Liddle: New one-year deal

The 23-year-old arrived from Sunderland last summer for an undisclosed fee having previously enjoyed a spell on loan at Stanley, racking up a total of 48 appearances to date.

"This is such a good club to be at," Liddle said.

"It's a brilliant club with brilliant lads and I can see it getting even better this year. We work hard for each other on and off the pitch. I think it's going to be a fun, enjoyable and successful year.

"I think once you come here you find it is different to a lot of clubs and you fall in love with it a bit. It's a great place to play your football and I think that's why a lot of lads come back."

Liddle becomes the seventh Accrington player so far this summer to sign a new deal after George Miller, Ian Dunbavin, Laurence Wilson, Dean Winnard, James Gray and Will Hatfield.

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.

was reticent with this signing, bringing our outlay on left backs to £50m + a Nani loan (and still paying his wages). However, if he's better than Pele then who am I to complain...
