Carl Fletcher's announcement that he plans to stay at Plymouth Argyle next season has been welcomed by boss Peter Reid.
Despite Argyle's relegation to League Two, the experienced midfielder has committed himself to the club for at least another year and has pledged to help them achieve promotion after two successive demotions.
Reid told This is Devon: "It's really good news and I'm delighted that Fletch has decided to excercise the option and stay with us. I've spoken before about how important a figure he was for us last season - both in the dressing room and on the pitch.
"Given the budget is going to be pretty tight and we'll probably have a fair percentage of young players in the squad, Fletch's presence and experience will be very valuable indeed."
