Coleraine midfielder Neil McCafferty has signed a one-year contract extension with the Irish Premiership club.

The 30-year-old's new deal ties him to the Showgrounds outfit until the end of the 2016-17 season.

McCafferty has scored 12 goals since joining Coleraine from Portadown in June last year and has become known for netting spectacular free-kicks.

"Neil has been excellent for us this season," said manager Oran Kearney.

"Not only has he scored some fantastic goals for us, but his all round play has been first class.

"Neil has also been a massive influence on and off the pitch.

"He is very happy here and with the direction in which we are going. It is a massive boost for us that he sees his future here."

Last week midfielder Darren McCauley agreed a two-year extension with Coleraine.
