Darlington FC have announced that Kevin Burgess has signed a new two-year contract following talks with manager Martin Gray.
The skipper and centre-half started his second spell at Darlington during the summer of 2015 after signing from Whitby Town.
He started his first spell in 2006 after joining from Middlesbrough, and played in the youth team under the current Darlington boss.
He made one senior appearance before being loaned out to Whitby, who signed him on a permanent basis in 2008. He made 240 appearances for the Seasiders, scoring 12 goals.
He was handed the captaincy when he signed for Quakers, and scored on his home debut against Frickley Athletic, and since then has started seventy-one games, scoring 15 goals.
The announcement about Burgess follows on from the news that Nathan Cartman, Mark Beck and Phil Turnbull have also signed new deals.
