Michael joined from Nottingham Forest in January 2005 and has so far made 95 appearances in our colours.
"Its really great that the Club has looked to reward me with a new contract," reacted Michael. "I still had four years left on my contract so this represents a further commitment on both my and the Club's behalf.
"We have got everything to play for as we head into our final game of the season. Our squad has settled so well. We've got a lot of different nationalities and our fair share of jokers, the team spirit is fantastic. You might think we are looking for a rest but actually we've all enjoyed the season so much that, in some ways, we are sad it is coming to an end."
In giving his reaction to securing the continued services of the Northallerton-born player, Martin Jol was quick to repeat his earlier uttered accolade.
"I am delighted that Michael has signed a further extension to his contract. He is exactly the kind of player that will be part of a bright future for our club. I've said it before and maybe there are other contenders as well, but he is my player of the season. I had a problem in the centre with Anthony Gardner and Ledley King being out, but Michael Dawson is always there and I think everybody recognises the honesty in his game."
