Barnes and Booth sign on again

Tim ChannonFirst Team

SKIPPER Sam Barnes and Supporters’ Player of the Season Will Booth are the latest members of last season’s squad to sign on again for the 2017/18 campaign.

That brings to seven so far the number of players who have agreed terms to stay on with the Seagulls.

Booth, who won the Supporters Vote at the end of the season player awards, made 38 appearances for the Bay and scored four goals.

Central defender Barnes returned for a second spell at the Bay from Glossop North End in early January and took over as captain following the departure of Tom Hardwick. He played 14  games, interrupted by a spell out with a hamstring injury,  and scored one goal away at Trafford.
