The New Saints have agreed a 12-month contract extension with former Liverpool trainee Richie Partridge.

The 30-year-old midfielder has proved influential for the Saints and has signed until June 2012.

"He's a model professional and the fact we can attract and retain players of his calibre is an excellent sign," boss Mike Davies told BBC Radio Shropshire.

Partridge, Michael Owen's brother-in-law, joined TNS in August and has hit 11 goals in 17 Welsh Premier outings.

In his early career, he made three League Cup appearances for Liverpool, but went on to play for Bristol Rovers, Coventry - where he was voted fans' player of the season - Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham, Chester, MK Dons and Stockport, where he was released last summer.

He also does work off the pitch for Saints. He has a first class degree in physiotherapy from the University of Salford, where he is now studying for a Masters degree in football rehabilitation.
