Defenders Jaydon Gibbs and Anthony Tonkin have signed new contracts with Aldershot Town as the squad returns to pre-season training.

The full backs are the final players from last season’s squad to commit their futures to the Shots and join Chris Barker, Joe Oastler, Jordan Roberts, Mark Molesley, Brett Williams, Josh Scott and Tristan Plummer in signing new deals at the Electrical Services Stadium.

Gibbs, 23, was signed from Ryman League side Chipstead in August, originally on non-contract terms.

Having arrived as a left winger, Gibbs converted to right back and gave some hugely-impressive performances before his season was ended prematurely by a hernia injury.

In total, he made 39 appearances in 2013-14, scoring four goals.

Tonkin made 16 appearances for the Shots last term, after suffering calf a calf injury in pre-season.

He has now played 58 games for the club in two years, after signing from Oxford United in May 2012.

The 34-year-old previously played more than 400 senior games for Yeovil Town, Stockport County, Crewe Alexandra, Forest Green Rovers, Grays Athletic and Cambridge United.
