Rochdale: Allen, Lancashire and Hery sign new contracts

Jamie Allen, Oliver Lancashire and Bastien Hery have signed new contracts with League One newcomers Rochdale.

Midfielder Allen, 19, scored six goals in 29 games last season as Keith Hill's side finished third in League Two to earn automatic promotion.

Centre-back Lancashire, 25, played 44 times in all competitions, while 22-year-old midfielder Hery appeared 14 times, scoring once.

All three players have signed deals until the end of the 2015-16 season.

Meanwhile 18-year-old midfielder Andy Cannon has signed his first professional contract with Dale.
