Chesterfield defender Dan Jones has extended his contract at the Proact Stadium until the summer of 2017.
The 28-year-old joined the club in the summer of 2014 and made 35 appearances in his first season as a Spireites player, and has started the first two games of the latest campaign.
Speaking after signing his new deal Jones expressed his pleasure at confirming his future at the Proact.
"I'm delighted," he said. "I had a good pre-season this year and I've really been able to buy into what the new manager has brought to the club. I love his enthusiasm, the way he goes about things and I think there's a lot to learn from him."
"I feel as fit as ever, and I think that's being shown out on the pitch."
Jones scored his first Spireites goal in pre-season at Buxton, and will doubtless be itching to add a competitive goal to his Chesterfield tally this season - pushing down the wing to provide attacking options as he did in the build-up to Jay O'Shea's equaliser against Barnsley on Saturday.
The left back says the style of play employed by Dean Saunders is a big factor in re-signing: "It was an easy decision with the contract as I've thoroughly enjoyed my time since I've been at the club. Our approach hasn't really changed too much under Dean and I think we're playing football the way it should be played.
"That suits me and my style and now I'm looking to keep playing and help the team to do as well as possible this season."
