GARRY HILL has convinced striker Scott Rendell to extend his stay at Woking.

Cards’ top goalscorer has put pen to paper on a new deal with the Kingfield outfit.

Hill has also stacked his deck with three other Cards who will be looking to make sure Woking come up trumps next season.

Midfield trio Josh Payne, Mark Ricketts and John Goddard (right) have all agreed contractual terms at Kingfield.

The news will delight fans who watched their side finish a creditable ninth in the Conference standings last season.

Skipper Ricketts, who at the end of season presentation evening last week collected a loyalty award having reached 200 appearances for the club, announced his deal on Twitter.

He said: “Delighted to have signed a new contract at Woking. Looking forward to next year already, could be very exciting.” Payne is also an influential figure down at Kingfield and has repaid the faith shown in him by Hill by agreeing to extend his stay.

The former Aldershot man, 23, had his contract with the Shots torn up after landing a prison sentence after being found guilty of assault in Guildford.

But he was given a lifeline back into football by Hill and has reaped the rewards.

His form has caught the eye of the England C selectors and last week he was called up to the squad that will face Slovakia in the Challenge Trophy on Saturday, May 24.

It is his third call up in a row having been involved in England’s 2-2 draw with the Czech Republic at Kingfield last November and their 1-0 away win against Jordan in March.

Defender Adam Newton and forward Giuseppe Sole have also signed new contracts.
