Accrington Stanley midfielder Joe Pritchard has signed a new deal to extend his stay at the club until 2023.

The 24-year-old has started each of Accrington's 11 League One games this season, scoring two goals.

He moved to Stanley on a free transfer from Bolton in the summer of 2019 and has agreed a two-year deal with an option for a further 12 months.

"This is a massive step in my career and I'm absolutely over the moon," he told the club website.external-link

"Last season, I was not starting every game but it's what I needed in my career. I needed some appearances and I got plenty more than I expected last season.

"This year, I have really kicked on and feel like I have stepped into my shoes and am performing well for the club."
