Dundalk FC have confirmed this afternoon that midfielder Robbie Benson has signed a new contract at the Club.

Speaking to Dundalkfc.com after the deal was confirmed, Benson said he was pleased to get the deal signed to remain at Oriel Park.

“I am very happy to get it all done. It was just a matter of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. We’re back in now to do a little bit of training and check our body fats, it’s the first time since I’ve been here that we have been in before Christmas so which is great. We had a great season last year and we managed to get the title back and win the FAI Cup as well which was a great way to end the season so it was a good one for us.

“You don’t win a league and Cup double too often. Some of the lads who have been around in 2015 achieved it before and this was my first time doing it so it was great for me and for all of us. The players that are here and the style of football that we play will hopefully ensure that kind of success will continue.

“The majority have signed for next year and that keeps the ball rolling for next year.”
