Scunthorpe United striker Steve Torpey has agreed a one-year extension to remain with the League One outfit.
Torpey's current contract was due to expire this summer, but the club have now secured the striker to a new deal.
The 35-year-old was the club's record signing when he joined from Bristol City for a fee of £175,000 in 2001.
Since moving to Glanford Park, Torpey has netted over 70 times for The Irons, at an average of a goal every four games, although he struggled to score in the last campaign, netting just once in 29 appearances.
Torpey is the latest in a long line of Irons to agree new terms, following Lee Ridley, Matthew Sparrow, Clifford Byrne, Andy Crosby and Neil MacKenzie in signing new contracts.
