Rochdale Football Club is delighted to announce that club captain Ethan Ebanks-Landell has signed a new contract.

The defender has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal.

Dale’s number six was a crucial member of Jimmy McNulty’s side last season, making 46 appearances in all competitions.

He commented:

“I’m delighted. The gaffer [Jimmy McNulty] was a huge part of it.

“What he expects from the club and what he can bring to the club is clear. What we had to deal with last season with everything off the pitch and lack of players that we had, to finish where we did, is a testament to him and the rest of the staff.

“There’s been a couple of signings already and I’m sure there will be more. Everyone has to get on board with how we play, not just on the training ground but in the classroom as well, as we call it. Hopefully, we can progress this season.”

Ebanks-Landell, who made 16 appearances on loan with Dale in 2019, returned to the club in the summer of 2022.

He has made 104 appearances for the club in total, missing just two games last season – one in the FA Trophy and one through suspension.

The 31-year-old also netted three times, earning Dale a point at Kidderminster Harriers, as well as in wins against Dorking Wanderers and Wealdstone.
