Joint top scorer Nick McCootie has become the fourth player with Vanarama National League South club Bath City to sign an extended contract until the end of the 2016/17 season.

The powerful striker joined City in September 2014 from Evo-Stik League Southern Division South & West side Paulton Rovers.

Following spells with Taunton Town, Bridgwater Town and Cinderford Town, the 27-year old moved to Winterfield Road in June 2012.

He enjoyed two successful seasons with the club, culminating in scoring both goals against Methyr Town in the 2013/14 play-off final to send Paulton into the Southern Premier.

Although he struggled with a number injuries he scored 14 goals, including in both legs of the FA Trophy semi-final, in thirty-seven appearances.

He continued to dogged by minor injuries during last season but during the latter stages of the campaign began to show signs he was overcoming these issues and it was no surprise when Gary Owers offered him a new deal for the current season.

The striker joins Billy Murphy, Frankie Artus and George Rigg in signing new deals.
