Stockton pens Tranmere extension

Tranmere Rovers striker Cole Stockton has signed a new three-year contract with the League One club.

The academy graduate made his debut in January 2012 and has gone on to make 68 appearances, scoring 10 times.

"He's a talented young footballer with loads of potential," Rovers manager Rob Edwards told the official club website.

"He's got a hammer of a right foot which will get us goals, but we're trying to add more things to his game too.

"If he continues to apply himself and show the right attitude he's got a bright future ahead of him in the game and at this club."

Stockton is the fifth Tranmere youngster to sign a new deal with the club this summer behind Jason Koumas, Jake Kirby, Sam Ramsbottom and Liam Davies.
