Carrick Rangers keeper Aaron Hogg has agreed terms to stay with the club until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
The 32-year-old arrived at the Loughshore Hotel Arena from Ards during the summer of 2018 and, in that time, has kept 20 clean sheets in 57 appearances despite being on the sidelines with injury since December. Prior to his time with Ards he had been on the books of Glentoran, Portadown and Crusaders.
Rangers boss Niall Currie was pleased to have secured his services for another year.
"We're delighted Aaron has committed to us next season. He knows how highly he's rated by not just me, but everyone at our club. We're glad to say he's well on the road to recovery from his injury and we have every faith he will return as good as new and carry on were he left off as, in my opinion, one of the best keepers in our league,” he told the official club website.
And Hogg himself is looking forward to getting started again.
"I’m very pleased to have signed an extension to my contract that will keep me at Carrick for another year. Last season was ended for me back in December through injury which was both frustrating and worrying as I didn’t know what way the operation and recovery would go. However, I’m delighted the Club has shown faith in me with a new deal and hopefully I should be fit and ready to go when the season starts."
