The 40-year-old led the Valiants to Sky Bet League One survival in 2014/15 and will now remain in charge until 2017.

Now club chairman Norman Smurthwaite has opted to continue the progress of the club with Page as manager.
The chairman said: “I’m really pleased to be able to announce that Rob has signed a new contract to remain as manager of the club.
“I’ve been very impressed with how he has performed in the role so far and I am looking forward to seeing the team develop under his leadership.”
Page added: “I’m extremely proud to have agreed a deal to remain as manager of this great football club.
“I’d like to thank the chairman, the players and the fans for their support since I took over and I’m looking forward to building on what we have already achieved next season and beyond.”
