Long had joined the club in February on a short-term deal before signing a one-year contract for next season.

Beech added: “Longy has been excellent since he has come in.

“Due to the form of the side in his early days, it was tough for him in terms of playing time but, from how he has finished the season, I’m sure you can all see the quality of Adam and we are delighted that he has decided to stay for next season.”
