Accrington Stanley: Piero Mingoia signs new contract

Accrington Stanley midfielder Piero Mingoia has signed a new contract, keeping him at the League Two club until the summer of 2015.

The 22-year-old joined Stanley in August 2013 after being released by Watford, having had a spell on loan during the 2012-13 season.

"Accrington gave me the chance to play football again and I'm really grateful for that opportunity," said Mingoia.

Manager James Beattie added: "He's a valuable member of our squad."

He has gone on to make 24 appearances this season, netting the winner at Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup.
