Ex-Saint James Beattie gets new Accrington deal

Daily Echo: JAMES BEATTIE JAMES BEATTIE

James Beattie will stay with Accrington until the end of the season after agreeing an extension to his player-coach contract.

The 34-year-old former Saints, Everton, Stoke and England striker joined the Reds in November and has scored four goals in 10 appearances.

Beattie's deal at the Crown Ground was due to expire on Wednesday but he will now continue to work alongside former Blackburn youth team-mate and Stanley manager Leam Richardson "It's fantastic to have a player like James Beattie with the quality he has on the pitch and the influence he has off it at our place," said Richardson in a club statement.

"It can only be a good thing that he's staying and hopefully it can help push us forward."
