MORECAMBE keeper Barry Roche said he had no hesitation in signing a new two year extension to his contract.

The popular Shrimps’ stopper has committed his future to the club until the end of the 2013/14 season and said he believes the club can from from strength to strength in that time.

The 29-year-old, who has made more than 150 appearances for the Shrimps since signing from Chesterfield in 2008, has become a firm fans favourite and says he is happier now than at any other time in his career.

He said: “My current contract runs out in the summer and the gaffer called us into his office to offer me a new deal and I had signed it within a few days.

“There was no hesitation, no worries or debate. It was just a case of putting pen to paper and moving on.

“I could have waited to the summer and seen what was on offer but there was no point at all. I was always going to sign a deal if offered because I love it at Morecambe.

“The club is a really friendly one and there is a fantastic team spirit. We have a great set of lads here and I am really enjoying my football.”
