Newport County defender Scot Bennett has signed a new two-year deal.

The 27-year-old, who can play both centre back and centre midfield, played a big part in keeping Newport in the football league last season.

"I am delighted. My family are all settled here in Newport, I have had a great two years so far and I am looking forward to the future," said Bennett.

Newport boss Michael Flynn added: "He is a versatile player and has really bought into the ethos of the club."

Bennett's contract extension comes a day after fellow Newport defender Dan Butler signed a new one-year deal at the club.

"Next season is all about improving on what we have done this year both on and off the field," said Butler.
