It appears that stability between the sticks won’t be an issue anytime soon for the Revolution after they re-signed starting goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth to a new deal on Monday.

Shuttleworth, who joined the club as a developmental player back in 2009, has made 97 appearances for the Revolution during the course of his seven-year career. After backing up longtime keeper Matt Reis for a number of years, he became the full-time starter in 2014.

“Bobby’s development as a goalkeeper has grown tremendously during his time in New England,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said in team release on Monday. “We are very pleased he has decided to re-sign with MLS to continue his career in New England.”

The 28-year-old keeper posted career bests in games played (32) and clean sheets (8) last year. In 2015, Shuttleworth has already collected six clean sheets in 22 starts to date. Earlier this year, he became only the second keeper in club history to record 30 wins in a Revolution uniform.

Terms of Shuttleworth’s deal were not disclosed, per club and league policy. His salary going into the 2015 season was $111,250 according to the MLS Players Union.
