Former Huddersfield Town left-back Liam Ridehalgh will remain at Tranmere Rovers as the club make another attempt to return to the English Football League.

The 25-year-old Town academy product left for the Birkenhead club in January 2014 after a loan stint.

He had also had spells at Swindon Town, Chesterfield and Rotherham United while making 26 Town appearances.

Tranmere were a League I club when Ridehalgh joined, but dropped into the National League last year.

They finished sixth last season under the management of Gary Brabin.

Ridehalgh, who has made more than 100 appearances for Tranmere, has signed a one-year deal.

Brabin said: “I’m pleased Liam is staying.

“He improved as last season went on and showed he can he can be versatile, playing left-back, left midfield and as part of a front three early in the season.

“He’s got a great attitude and wants to do well for this club.”

Ridehalgh said: “This club has become my home and I’m determined to do everything I can to help it get back into the Football League.

“We came so close to the play-offs last season and I think with the squad we’ve got, we can do even better this time.”
