Sinton led Telford to promotion in his first season in charge

AFC Telford United boss Andy Sinton has signed a contract extension, keeping him at the club until May 2014.

The 45-year-old joined the Bucks in May 2010 and led them to promotion from Blue Square Bet North last season.

His new deal represents the longest awarded to a Telford manager since the new club was formed in 2004.

"I want to manage in the League and the next challenge for me is to get Telford ready to compete for that," Sinton told the club website.external-link

The former England winger's playing career included spells at QPR, Sheffield Wednesday, Tottenham and Wolves, and chairman Lee Carter said the club were benefiting from that experience.

"This contract shows that the club is determined to keep progressing," said Carter.

"I'm delighted that Andy has agreed this deal because he is the foundation of everything we're trying to do as a club.

"We've made phenomenal progress in terms of our professionalism since he arrived and we want to get a foothold in our new division and then build on that."
