Darlington goalkeeper Sam Russell has signed a new one-year deal with the club after a successful 2010/11 season at The Arena.

The 28-year-old re-joined the Quakers from Wrexham in May 2010, and made 53 appearances including May's FA Trophy final victory against Mansfield.

"I'm really happy to sign for another year, it's where I want to be," Russell told the club website.

"I really feel like the club is getting back on the up and could go places."

Russell added: "The club is still buzzing from the FA Trophy win and I want to be part of that.

"Hopefully we can take that momentum into next season."
