Via the BBC – Carlisle United defender Frank Simek has signed a new one-year deal with the Cumbrians, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2013.
The 27-year-old has been with Carlisle since his release by Sheffield Wednesday in the summer of 2010, and has since made 81 appearances.
“Frank is another one we are delighted to have on board with us,” boss Greg Abbott told the club website. “He has played some excellent football since he joined us.” Abbott added: “He is a really hard worker who gives everything for the team.”
Simek, a United States international, has skippered the side in the absence of regular captain Paul Thirlwell, and played 25 of 46 league games for the club in 2011-12 after recovering from an early-season hip injury.
According to the News & Stars, the 27-year-old right-back has finalised his contract, which has an option to be extended by a further 12 months, two days before the start of pre-season training.
Simek played High School soccer for the SLUH Jr Billikens and Club ball for Metro United (now St Louis Scott Gallagher)
