Macclesfield defender George Pilkington and goalkeeper Ritchie Branagan have both agreed new one-year contracts.

Former Everton trainee Pilkington, 33, initially moved to the Silkmen on loan from Mansfield in 2014 and made the move permanent last summer.

Branagan, 23, has made just two outings after joining from non-league Salford City in 2013 but will benefit from Rhys Taylor's move to Newport.

The pair join midfielders Paul Turnbull and Danny Rowe in signing new deals.
