CLUB captain Stuart Lewis has signed a new one-year to stay with Wycombe Wanderers.

The combative midfielder was handed the armband by Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth last season and he responded with his best-ever goal return, netting three times.

Wanderers have today confirmed the 26-year-old, who has played 133 times for the club, has agreed a new deal that will keep him at Adams Park for another season.

Lewis said: "I think everyone knows how much this club means to me and there's nowhere else I'd rather be. I've had a real rollercoaster journey here with a promotion, relegation and that amazing day at Torquay a few weeks ago, and I can't wait to play my part in making sure next season is one to remember for all the right reasons.

"It's a real honour to play for the manager and I've made a lot of good friends here on and off the pitch, so I'm delighted to be staying."

Ainsworth said: "Stu gets everyone going, he gives 100 per cent week in, week out, and that's the kind of character I want in my team.

"I'm really happy with the way the squad's coming together for the new season and was very keen to make sure Stu is a part of that, so to have him on board for another year is great news."
