Bury striker Andy Bishop has put pen to paper on a new contract.

Bishop, who leads the Shakers' scoring charts with eight goals this term, agreed a two-year extension to his current contract, keeping him at Gigg Lane until the end of the 2013/14 season.

The 29-year-old joined from York in 2006 and has scored 78 goals in all competitions across appearances 216, despite knee, hernia and abductor problems contributing to lengthy spells on the sidelines over the past two seasons.

"Once the chairman made it clear that they wanted me to extend my contract, it was one of the easiest decisions that I have had to make," Bishop told Bury's official website.

"As a player, you get to hear of other clubs that might be looking to talk to you, but the club and supporters have been incredible to me over what has been a difficult two years, and I just want to reward everyone that has kept faith in me during that time.

"Personally and professionally, I am just so happy here and I am really excited about the future direction the club is going in."
