Ford said: “I’m really pleased to able to continue working with Matty, he’s a talented young player who has lots of improvement in him as long as he continues to strive for development.

“I’m delighted in the progress we’re making as a club which again is indicated with a signing of this quality.”

On his move to the Championship club, Marsh said: “This is the club I wanted to sign for.

“I massively enjoyed my time at the club on dual-reg in 2018 and loved playing with a great set of lads. I’m excited to be at a club on the up and we deserve to be at the top level in the future.

“Fordy has helped me a lot this year and I will continue to develop with him as coach. I’m looking forward to working with him and the staff.”
