Coleraine have been handed a boost before their forthcoming Europa League game this week with the news that club captain Stephen O'Donnell has signed a two-year extension to his current contract.
 
The 27-year-old has been with the Bannsiders since May 2017 after making the switch from Institute, and has gone on to make just five short of 100 appearances to go alongside his Irish and League Cup winners medals.
 
Manager Oran Kearney was pleased to keep the central defender at The Showgrounds until the end of 2022-23 campaign.
 
"He is our captain and he’s now hitting the age where he will be coming into his prime," he told the official club website.
 
"He epitomises what the club is about both on and off the pitch and he has a hunger to do well this season after suffering a calf injury during the last campaign. Stephen is a big personality and he leads by example and the news is brilliant for everyone concerned."
