Accrington defender Matty Pearson has extended his contract at the Sky Bet League 2 club.
The former Blackburn and Halifax man has been a first-team regular since joining Stanley in the summer.
And the 22-year-old is delighted to stay at the Wham Stadium until the summer of 2018.
"It's great to have my future sorted," said Pearson on the club's official website. "This club suits me as I live reasonably close by, we've been playing well and it felt right here from the moment I joined."
Stanley boss John Coleman said Pearson is a positive influence in the dressing room.
Coleman said: "If you work with Matty every day in training you find out that he's a breath of fresh air.
"We brought him in this summer, I knew him from Rochdale and I've got every faith in him and he knows that. He's got better as the season has gone on and he thoroughly deserves this new contract."
