Bath have confirmed they have agreed a new two-year deal with flanker Ben Skirving.
The 27-year-old has made 49 appearances for Bath since joining from Saracens in 2009 - with Skirving appearing in every match-day squad this season.
And Skirving, who was capped once by England in 2007, is thrilled to have sorted out his future at The Rec.
"I have greatly enjoyed my time here and feel I can contribute more to the team over the coming seasons as the club moves forward," he said.
"I am really excited about being part of what I think will be a bright and successful future."
Bath director of rugby Sir Ian McGeechan added: "We are very happy Ben has agreed to stay with the club.
"He has been a very effective player for us this season, and his hard work and dependability is a very good example to the rest of the squad."
