Liverpool born Andrai is one of four scholars to have been offered professional terms at the end of the 09/10 season after successfully coming through the Shakers Youth System.

Quick to learn and eager to impress, Andrai finished the season with some strong performances at right back is already showing signs of pushing hard for a regular start in the new season.

Speaking this afternoon, Manager Richie barker said:"Obviously I am delighted that Andrai has tied himself to the club for another two years.  It's never really been an issue with him regarding him and his contract offer.  The new season promises to be a big season for Andrai and players like him.  Now it's time for him to fulfil his potential that we has shown during last season and step forward."
