Elliot Bradbrook has signed a deal which will take him into a 10th season at Dartford.
The 33-year-old looked certain to leave Princes Park this summer but has agreed terms with new joint-managers Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan.
Bradbrook will relinquish the captaincy next season in a bid to fit football around his work commitments.
Coyle and Flanagan said: "Everyone will be in agreement that Elliot’s service and commitment to the club is without question.
"After years of service Elliot has asked if the club could support him in the upcoming season alongside his work commitments.
"The management team are more than happy to help him with this as we feel Elliot will still be an asset to the team.
"As part of this agreement the captaincy of the side for 2018-19 will change. Elliot is a born leader and all the traits he has as a captain we know will remain with him when he plays.
"We are really happy to have retained Elliot and look forward to seeing him in a Dartford shirt once again."
Goalkeeper Deren Ibrahim, who played second-fiddle to Berti Schotterl during the run-in, has also put pen to paper.
Coyle and Flanagan said: "Deren is someone who we are very excited to be working with next season.
"We have spoken to him and said what our expectations are.
"We have detailed the areas of improvement and we are looking forward to seeing him return to being one of the best keepers in the division."
