TOWN legend Andy Booth has signed a one-year extension to his contract with the club.
The 33-year-old striker, who is in his testimonial year, put pen to paper on the day promising left-back Joe Skarz was awarded a first professional contract.
Before the transfer window closed at midnight, goalkeeper Paul Rachubka joined League I rivals Blackpool on loan until the end of the season.
It means Simon Eastwood will be promoted to the bench for the Galpharm clash with Gillingham on Saturday, when loan signing from Blackburn, Andy Taylor, is expected to make his debut for Peter Jackson's determined side.
Jackson admitted to being disappointed he has not recruited at least a couple of permanent signings during January, but he is now targeting the loan market when business re-opens next week.
"People have been writing off Andy Booth for years but he has done brilliantly for me," said Jackson today.
"He has been proving people wrong season after season and there's a lot more left in Andy Booth - that's why he's got the contract extension.
"With young Joe, he is definitely one for the future.
"I know I've brought in Andy Taylor, but I've been really pleased with how Joe has stepped up from the Academy and he's done well at first-team level, so this is an incentive for him to keep up the hard work."
