Will Hatfield has signed a new one-year contract at Accrington.

The 21-year-old midfielder scored six goals in 34 appearances last season and is looking to build on that form under new boss James Beattie.

"Last season finished on a high for us," he said.

"There's been a lot of change during the off season but James Beattie has come in as manager now and I think there are exciting times ahead.

"Everything was a bit up in the air but it soon got sorted out and I'm delighted to sign.

"Everyone is friendly here and it's really a family club. With James Beattie and Paul Stephenson in charge I think that we're going to have a really good season."
