Mansfield Town is delighted to activate a clause in the contract of experienced defender James Perch, to extend the 35-year-old’s stay at the club until the summer of 2022.
The versatile player has been one of Stags’ most consistent performers this season, in various roles in midfield and latterly in defence.
Boss Nigel Clough said: “We’re thrilled that Perchy’s staying. I think he’s been outstanding in the last few months, whether he’s at right-back, centre-half or left-back. He’s one of those characters who’s brilliant to have around. He wants to stay and be a part of what we’re trying to do next season.
“He’s a great example of how to be a professional footballer to the younger players here.
“There’s a reason why he’s played at a higher level and that’s evident with Perchy on a daily basis,” he added.
