Mike Norton signs for another season at FC United

FC United’s top goalscorer Michael Norton has signed a new contract with the club for 2011-12.

Norton, who bagged a total of 32 goals last season and captained the side regularly in 2011, has this week agreed a further one-year deal with FC United – despite interest from other clubs including a couple at Conference North level.

Manager Karl Marginson said: “I’m very pleased Norts is staying with us – not just for his strike-rate but for his work-rate and leadership too.

“Obviously, after the season we’ve had I want to keep the squad together as far as possible and I’m currently in discussions with other players about next season.”

Norton, a tiler by trade, won the Supporters’ Player of the Season Award for 2010-11.
