Callum Ainley and Denver Hume have signed new one-year contracts at Grimsby Town.

Midfielder Ainley, 26, joined from Crewe Alexandra last summer, making just seven appearances due "an extended period" on the sidelines.

Hume, a 25-year-old defender, joined from Portsmouth in January and made 16 appearances.

“It’s a fresh start, I’ve got a year now to really show people here what I can do," Ainley said.

"I feel like I owe the club something with the support they gave me last year and helping me get through the toughest time of my career and personal life."

Hume added: "I really enjoyed my time here during the second half of last season, so I’m delighted to get it sorted and I’m looking forward to the new season."

Grimsby finished 21st in League Two last season and they begin their new campaign with a trip to Fleetwood Town.
