A well-established fans’ favourite, Anderson has been at Hillheads for more than ten years and at the age of 29 has already made 359 appearances for the club.

“On a personal level, I’m really enjoying my football and it’s a club I hold close to my heart,” he said.

“naturally, I’m very happy to have signed a contract for the next two and a half years.”

Manager Nathan Haslam added: “Callum is a huge part of my future plans. He’s led by example in his performances and his application this season has been exceptional.”

On Saturday Whitley Bay found themselves without a game when their fixture against Newton Aycliffe was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

This Saturday (February 29) they are away to Shildon.

Meanwhile, the Reserves made it three wins in a row in the Northern Alliance when they beat bottom of the table Seaton Delaval 4-2 in a local derby.

The victory helped the reserves climb three places up the Premier Division standings.

Scott Lowrey, one of several first team players drafted into the the side, opened the scoring inside four minutes.

The hosts then drew level at 1-1 but Andy Robertson produced a stunning strike, only for Delaval to draw level for a second time.

In the second half Robertson scored again to put the Reserves in front for a third time before Dillon Blake added a fourth from the penalty spot.

On Saturday they are home to Newcastle Chemfica.
