DEFENSIVE strongman Andy Nicholas has agreed to extend his stay at Vauxhall Motors by another month.
The 27-year-old centre-back has been a big hit at Rivacre Park since signing on loan from Conference side Barrow, making eight appearances and scoring two goals.
Liverpool-born Nicholas brings a wealth of experience to Motors’ back-line.
After starting his career as a trainee with Liverpool, he signed for Swindon Town in 2003 and made more than 140 league and cup appearances for the Robins before being released in the summer of 2008.
A two-year spell with Rotherham United followed, before Nicholas joined Barrow this year.
He was due to line up for Motors at Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday but the match was postponed due to the snow. It has been rearranged for Tuesday, January 11 (7.45pm).
