Seamus signs new deal

Captain puts pen to paper on a new two-year contract

22 June 2020

Accrington Stanley captain Seamus Conneely has signed a new two-year deal, keeping him at the Wham Stadium until at least 2022.

The 31-year-old, who was out of contract this summer, said: "I am delighted to sign a new two-year contract at Accrington Stanley and thankful to the manager and the chairman for allowing me to stay for another two seasons.

"I have been here since 2015, six seasons, and have had a wonderful time heading into the Play-Offs in 2016 and the highlight was winning the League Two title and playing in League One. Hopefully there are more successful times to come as well.

"I am anxious to get back on the pitch again, we are not sure when that is going to be, but I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Wham Stadium hopefully soon."

The former Sheffield United midfielder first came to John Coleman's attention at Sligo and signed for the Reds in January 2015 and was made skipper the following season.

He has been an integral part of the Stanley side since then, helping them into the League Two Play-Offs in 2016 before they lost in the semi-finals and then lifting the trophy as the Reds won the League Two championship in 2018.

He has since helped Stanley maintain their position in League One for the past two campaigns.
