The midfielder was a standout performer for the Bannsiders last term as they finished runners-up in the Danske Bank Premiership and he earned a place in the Team of the Year.

Lowry made 44 appearances in the Coleraine engine room earning high praise from his manager.

The new one-year deal was agreed several months ago as the 34-year-old closes in on 300 appearances for the Showgrounds outfit.

“Stephen arguably just had his best season in a Coleraine shirt and he managed to play 44 games within a tight schedule, which just shows his commitment,” Kearney told the club website.

“The contract was signed and sealed in January and the negotiations were easy done, but both parties didn’t feel it was the right time to announce it as we wanted to get the season out of the way.

“I am delighted with the agreement and despite Stevie being 34-years-old, he plays like a 24-year-old and has always been in good shape.

“Not only that, but he is a great professional, a great leader and a great person.”
