*BS*Dover Athletic are delighted to announce that Barry Cogan, Liam Bellamy and Lee Hook have all signed new contracts with the club.*BF*
The trio have agreed one-year deals to see them through to the end of Whites’ first season back in the Conference Premier.
Midfielder Cogan is one of the club’s longest-serving players, having joined Whites in November 2010.
Last season was widely viewed as his best since his arrival, playing in 44 first-team matches and ending the season with 15 goals.
It was the 29-year-old’s late penalty in the final regular fixture of the season, against Hayes & Yeading, which sent Whites into the play-off campaign which culminated in promotion to the Conference Premier.
Fellow midfielder Liam Bellamy has also agreed a new deal with the club, confirming a second season at Crabble for the 23-year-old. Bellamy was Chris Kinnear’s fourth signing last summer, and made 39 appearances last season – scoring six goals.
Also signing on for another season is experienced goalkeeper Lee Hook, who has now been at the club for over five years. The 35-year-old made three appearances last season, all in the Kent Senior Cup, but plays a key role as understudy for Mitch Walker.
The club are delighted that Barry, Liam and Lee have committed their efforts next season to the club.
