Maidstone goalkeeper Lee Worgan has signed a new two-year deal that will keep him at the Gallagher Stadium until the summer of 2016.

Worgan has enjoyed an excellent debut season with United following his move from Tonbridge Angels, quickly becoming a fans' favourite.

He's been the only ever-present in United's Ryman League Premier Division campaign and is three short of 50 appearances in all competitions.

He told the Stones website said: "I've had a good season. I've really enjoyed myself here at the club.

"The gaffer's been brilliant, the dressing room's been fantastic and it's somewhere I want to stay, so I'm delighted to sign the contract.

"I've got a good track record of staying fairly injury-free. It's always my aim to play every league game, providing I'm selected, so that's the sort of record I want to keep going."

Stones boss Jay Saunders has been discussing plans for next season with chief executive Bill Williams and co-owner Terry Casey, with Worgan the first target.

He said: "You're always planning ahead and there's a few players obviously coming out of contract that we need to start talking to and I thought there was no better place to start than Worgs.

"He's been superb. I knew what we were getting from over the years playing against him and seeing him play but I probably didn't realise how good he can be.

"We've won a lot of games we maybe would have lost if it weren't for him."
