"In his first season with us he scored some vital goals that help us to win promotion and last season he played a big part in the second half of the season, being a regular in the side from the end of January onwards, helping us secure some important results.

"He will benefit from a good pre-season and he is a good age with a good amount of experience behind him. Ben is a player who we believe in, he has shown what he is capable of and we believe there is even more to come from him. Our record with Ben in the side was strong last season and we are looking forward to him staying a Cobbler."

The club are still in negotiations with Jordan Willis, Sam Sherring, Louis Appéré, Lee Burge and Shaun McWilliams.
