Crusaders: Paul Heatley signs on until 2022
The winger has been one of the key men for north Belfast side since joining the club six years ago.
Paul Heatley will be with Crusaders for another three years at least.
Heatley has signed a contract extension that will see him stay at Seaview until at least the end of the 2022 season.
The former Carrick Rangers man has been a key figure for Stephen Baxter's side since joining the club in 2013, hitting 164 goals in 319 appaearances - a ratio of better than a goal every other game.
"He has been ever present in the team and has scored some spectacular goals and important goals in his time at the club, none more so that the all important goals in our away win against FK Ekranas in 2014, seeing us qualify and progress for the first time ever in European competition, not forgetting this season when he scored two of the three goals away to B36 Torshavn to help us qualify to play Wolves," read a club statement.
"His trickery on the wing leaves many defenders baffled as what he will do next and his goal against Glenavon at Seaview just a few weeks ago shows his ability to do what he does best. Off the pitch Paul is willing to help wherever possible and is an all round club man making him a legend among the Crusaders faithful."
