Accrington defenders Sean Hessey and Peter Murphy are the latest players to sign new one-year deals at the club.

Hessey joined Stanley following his release by Macclesfield and went on to make 47 appearances last season, scoring twice.

His new deal includes an option to extend the contract for a further year, and the 32-year-old said: "I'm really happy to be staying as I was really happy here last season."

Murphy is a product of the club's youth system and has made nearly 40 first-team appearances.

He has now committed himself to a fourth season at the Crown Ground and will be looking to cement a place in manager John Coleman's plans.
