Stockport County midfielder Lewis Montrose has signed a two-year extension to his contract which will keep him with the club until the summer of 2019.

Montrose said: "I'm very excited to have signed the contract and secured my future with County because they've been great to me - they're a great set of fans, the gaffer and his staff are brilliant and at 28 years old I'm still learning, so I'm delighted to be able to stay here and continue improving my game, which is what I want to do at this stage of my career. 

"It wasn't a hard decision: I'm enjoying my football, I love the club and it's great to get the longevity of a two-year deal, as I did when I first signed for Stockport County. But the most important thing now is the next game, because what I want to do is get us into the play-offs, that is literally all I'm thinking about, not the contract, it's all about doing my best for County and winning football matches."

Montrose is County's reigning player of the year and has made more than sixty appearances since joining from York City in the summer of 2015.

The Manchester-born midfielder spent his formative years as a trainee at Manchester City before moving to Wigan Athletic.

He went on to have an illustrious career in the Football League, winning promotion to League One with Wycombe Wanderers in 2011 and being part of a Gillingham squad which won the League Two title in 2013.

Montrose has made a huge impression both on and off the pitch since arriving at Edgeley Park, and is a tremendous ambassador for County in the local community. He said: "I came to County from full-time football so when I joined it was a bit of a shock just filling my time, because you get such limited time to train with your team-mates, so I spoke to the guys in the Community Foundation about the sports coaching they do in schools, I met with their manager Dave Wardle and he gave me a job in the Community team and I'm really thankful because it's been a great opportunity for me."

Montrose joins Ben Hinchliffe, Sam Minihan and Michael Clarke in signing new deals to stay at Edgeley Park beyond the end of this season
