Fisher said: "I'm delighted to sign a new contract, it's a good club with a good bunch of people and I'm really happy to be here."

North End signed Fisher on a free transfer from Rotherham United last July.

He started his career at Celtic, making 21 appearances for the Hoops, while he also had a loan spell with St Johnstone.

PNE are aiming to get a number of their first-team squad signed-up on extended contracts this summer.
