Alan Bennett: AFC Wimbledon defender signs new contract

AFC Wimbledon defender Alan Bennett has signed a new one-year deal with the League Two club.

The 31-year-old centre-back made 18 appearances for the club after joining on a free transfer in February.

Dons assistant manager Neil Cox told the club website:  "Alan has been a key player for us and he has proven his worth since joining Wimbledon.

"He is a leader both on and off the pitch and his experience was invaluable for us during the run-in."

He added: "As soon as the season ended we wanted to keep Alan as a priority before other clubs could come in for him."
