The former Newcastle Town boss took charge in May 2017 following the departure of Dave Stringer.

The news will be a boost for The Scholars, who reclaimed a play-off spot last night after a dramatic win over Market Drayton Town.

Dundas said: “I’m delighted to have been offered a two year contract to manage this wonderful football club.

“All my management team are on board and looking forward to whichever league we are in, with Mick Joiner and the directors showing real ambition to progress up the non league ladder.

“This season has been a hard but rewarding one with bringing so many young players into the squad. This is something that we feel we can build on to enable us to have even better future seasons.

“The new players and supporters have interacted extremely well and I can’t thank the supporters enough for allowing these lads the time to grow into this level of football, home and away they have been loud and proud and long may that continue.

“The people in and around the club have welcomed us in with open arms. It is a very well run organised, stable, family club, which made the decision to accept the contract easy.”

A statement from Chasetown FC said the new deal showed the faith they had in Dundas to take the side forward.

“The club is extremely pleased with the progress Scott, his backroom staff and players have made so far this season,” the statement said. “We all have the same drive and ambition to progress the club on and off the pitch.

“This announcement underpins that ambition with continuity and stability which has always been a high priority for the club.

“Scott has developed a promising young group of players and this announcement will also help Scott and his staff to continue to develop the squad and build on the progress already made this season.”
