The club can confirm that Mark Ross has penned a new deal and will remain at the Horsfall Stadium for the season ahead.
The athletic defender made 40 appearances for Avenue last season, establishing himself as a key figure in an impressive backline.
He joined in August 2017 after spending the previous campaign with Stockport County, who he represented as captain for large portions of the season. Ross had previously lined-up for Chorley and battled it out with current teammates such as Adam Boyes and Oli Johnson in the 2015 Conference North play-off final.
After committing to Avenue for the 2018/19 season, Ross had this to say:
“I’m very happy to have signed on for another year, especially after the success of last season. It was one of the most enjoyable seasons I’ve had and that was helped by the lads in the dressing room, who are a top bunch and make playing better.
As soon as the season finished, I think I speak for all the lads when I say we wanted to carry on and keep up the momentum. Everyone’s going to be eager to get back playing. I miss football already!
I want to thank the gaffer for not only helping me regain my love of the game, but for the way he works with the squad and manages situations. It’s a great atmosphere to be in and amongst.”
