The goalkeeper said:
“I’m delighted to be going into my seventh season with the football club.

Manager Liam McDonald admitted that he was delighted to be able to keep the 31-year-old at Keys Park. He said:
“Dan is an experienced goalkeeper and someone that will be crucial for us this season. I actually played against him a few times as a player as well.
“Going into step three I feel that he will be one of the top goalkeepers in the league – something that will be vital going into this season.
“Dan showed a desire to want to stay at the club and is excited about the plans for next season and I’m delighted to be able to keep him.”
