"Andy is a fantastic professional and a firm fans' favourite," manager Jim Bentley told the club website.external-link

"He can play anywhere along the backline and is vital to what we want to achieve here."

He added: "I am delighted he has signed up again because he is the perfect age and still getting better and better."

Parrish has only scored once for Morecambe, in a 2-1 home win against Dagenham & Redbridge last season.
