Scott Brown signs new Accrington deal

Accrington Stanley

Scott Brown has signed a new one-year deal at Accrington.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who joined Sky Bet League One newcomers Stanley from Grimsby in January 2016, was out of contract at the Wham Stadium.

‘I am made up to sign,’ Brown told Accrington’s website. ‘Obviously, now we have got the chance to replicate what we did last year.

‘It will be a lot harder in League One but you’ve got to be in it to win it.’

Boss John Coleman said: ‘Scott’s a great player to have around the place, his enthusiasm is infectious on and off the pitch. He was keen to stay and I’m pleased he has signed.’
