Daniel Kelly has pledged his long term future to Carrick Rangers by agreeing a new four year deal with boss Niall Currie.
The 27-year-old midfielder has been with the club since August 2012 apart from a year at Glentoran during the 2017/18 season. In that time he has clocked up 196 appearances and 38 goals.
Delighted to have made the commitment to his local club, Kelly told the official club website, "When the club came to me about extending my contract it was just a case of where do I sign? Seeing the work that is going on behind the scenes makes it a really exciting time to be at the club.
"It's not by luck we achieved the position we did in the league this year, it's down to the hard work of all the aforementioned and the players. Being a part of this progression and watching my hometown club develop is honour, I can't wait to see what the future holds."
And Currie was just as pleased to have got his man for the foreseeable future.
"We're delighted that Daniel has made such a commitment. He's a local lad so he knows the importance we place on that. He has been a wonderful influence since the moment we re-signed him from Glentoran and has played a massive role in getting our Club back to the Premiership. We are all delighted with his commitment and look forward to the many years ahead.”
