Seaham Red Star are delighted to announce that both Anth Myers and Paul Weldon have signed contracts, which will see them stay with the club for the 2019-20 season and beyond.
The pair have been influential and are two of the longest-serving players still left with the club, after the playing staff was overhauled midway through the season.
This saw the Star's fortunes turn around and they started to then propel up the league table, and away from the danger zone.
Seaham are really pleased that another two players have committed to the new season and Myers added that he wants to "push on" in the league and cup competitions next term.
He said: "I'm really happy to have signed on for the coming season. I came into this season with the thought of this being my last as I have a young family.
I’ve really enjoyed this season though, the committee have made me feel at home and I’ve really enjoyed playing for Seaham.
"The lads, who’ve came in, have been great. I get on with them all really well and have enjoyed playing in the same team as them.
"The changing room is excellent and that’s half the battle. Colly and Jonna have said they want to keep the majority of the squad with a couple of additions and I felt like I wanted to be a part of that and really challenge ourselves next season.
"A run in the Vase is always good and there’s no reason why we can’t push on and challenge in the league also."
In other news, physio Mick Hulme, who has been a big part of the dressing room and club since arriving midway through the season, has also told the Star that he will be staying next season.
The Star have one game remaining this season, against Newcastle Benfield, and are hoping for the town to turn out in their numbers to see them off into the summer.
