Motherwell defender Stevie Hammell has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at Fir Park until the summer of 2012.
The left-back has become the first of Well's out-of-contract players to agree new terms with the Scottish Premier League club.
The 28-year-old, who is in his second spell with Motherwell after rejoining from Southend in January 2008, has made 334 appearances for the club.
"I am delighted to have things sorted out. I've been discussing my own situation for a while now and it's a relief to know everyone has been tied up," the Scotland cap told the club's official website.
First of many
"There's quite a few of the boys out of contract here and hopefully I'll be the first of many to stay on for a while yet.
"We've done fairly well this season so if we can keep the core of the squad together then who knows where we can go.
"For me personally, I just want to continue to keep on doing my best for the club.
"Someone was just asking me about my appearance total for Motherwell and now that I am here for another two years, hopefully I can add a few to that."
Meanwhile, Well have handed two-year professional contracts to five of their under-19 squad - defenders Jordan Halsman and Dario Quinn, midfielder Peter Innes and forwards Steven Lawless and Gary Smith.
