"I really enjoy playing under the management team and playing with this group of lads. The fans have been brilliant in my time at the club. Hopefully as a club we can achieve success going forwards. The club is going in the right direction and I'm delighted to be a part of it."

Whitby Town joint-manager Bullock added: "Congratulations to Dan. His performances have been worthy of this new deal. He's the captain and he sets the example so it's key to get these players tied down It's another big statement of intent from the board so thank you to them.

"There are a lot of clubs in the area and in the higher leagues desperate for centre-halves. When Dan's on his game you probably won't find a better one aerially."

Born in Middlesbrough, Rowe began his career at Darlington and made his first steps into professional football with Rotherham United, as well as having a loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers.

After four years in the Football League, Rowe stepped into non-league football going on to play for York City and then Frickley before making the move to join the Seasiders.
