Accrington Stanley striker Shay McCartan has signed a new two-year deal with the League Two club.

The 22-year-old former Northern Ireland Under-21 international joined the Lancashire side in 2013 after his release by Burnley.

He scored seven goals last season as Stanley reached the play-offs.

"Josh Windass' form last year kept Shay from playing the position he wanted and now it's a big chance for Shay," said boss John Coleman.

"He is capable of scoring a lot of goals this season."
