Feeney can go on and on
THERE is still a lot of football left in striker Warren Feeney, according to Plymouth Argyle manager Carl Fletcher.
Feeney, 31, has been offered a new contract by the Pilgrims to extend his stay at Home Park.
His current deal, which was signed last August while the club were still in administration, ends on June 30.
Feeney made 27 starts and three substitute appearances for Argyle in 2011/12, and scored three times.

Despite his shortage of goals, Fletcher thought the Northern Ireland international made a major contribution to the Pilgrims winning their fight for Football League survival.
Fletcher told Herald Sport: "I wouldn't say he's getting towards the end of his career.
"He's 31 and if you look after yourself you can play well past 35. You see a number of players do that these days.
"Warren has got great experience and he's a great person to have around the dressing room.
"He played a massive part in why we had such a great team spirit last season.
"You know what you are going to get from Warren. He always gives 100 per cent, whether he plays good or bad. He never shirks hard work."
Feeney has been capped 46 times by Northern Ireland but has not been included in a 24-strong squad for their friendly away to The Netherlands in Amsterdam on June 2.
Argyle have offered new deals to five of their out-of-contract players, including Feeney.
The other four are defenders Durrell Berry and Robbie Williams, goalkeeper Ollie Chenoweth and winger Joe Lennox.
As yet, there has been no confirmation from Argyle whether any of the players have accepted the terms offered to them.
Chenoweth, 21, will almost certainly be the back-up 'keeper to Jake Cole should he sign his new contract.
The former Pilgrims' apprentice from Liskeard made his first team debut in the penultimate match of last season, the 2-2 draw away to Morecambe at the end of April.
Fletcher believes Chenoweth has a lot of potential for the future.
"You know with goalies they don't reach their peak until their mid to late 20s and he's still only young," said the Argyle manager.
"He's maturing, physically and mentally, he's another local lad and he's great to have around the place."
Fletcher pointed to the fact Chenoweth often stayed behind after training so his team-mates could have extra shooting practice.
TALKS about new contracts for Fletcher and his coaching staff of Romain Larrieu and Kevin Nancekivell are continuing to take place.
The current deals for the trio expire at the end of June.
