Club captain Michael Doyle has agreed to extend his stay at Meadow Lane.

The Irishman, who first arrived in January 2019, led us to the play-off final last season and remains determined to return us to the EFL.

“I’m delighted to be part of the club’s future,” said the skipper. “I can see success ahead over the next four-or-five years, I really can.

“The club has come a massively long way and the people in charge are making the right moves to take it forward.

“There are a lot of exciting times ahead for the supporters and on a personal level I just want to play a part in getting us back into the league and on the right footing.

“My target when I arrived was to keep us in the EFL. Unfortunately we came up short, so something that’s driving me on is my desire to leave the club where I found it. If I manage to do that in my time I’d be so happy. If anything, Wembley has made me more determined.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their support over the year. We’ve got to make sure we all come back stronger because it’s going to be a long, hard season. Let’s make sure we’re all smiling and celebrating at the end this time.”

Doyle was one of seven players to be offered new deals, with Richard Brindley, Kristian Dennis, Dion Kelly-Evans, Alex Lacey, Joe McDonnell and Sam Osborne also being given the chance to remain at the Lane.
