Our club record appearance holder Glenn Main has today signed a new contract keeping him with the club until the summer of 2023.

Glenn came through our youth development programme to debut as a 17-year-old on May 7th 2003 in a 6-0 home win over Lossiemouth.

He then made nine appearances the following season before heading to Nairn St Ninian on loan for two seasons and then joining the Showfield club permanently in 2006.

A year later though, his performances there earned him a move back to Station Park and he has been with us ever since, reaching a total of 473 appearances to date and scoring 20 goals, making him the record appearance holder in our club’s entire history.

This season, Glenn has managed 22 appearances, scoring three times.

Director of Football Graeme Macleod commented:

“Having followed Glenn’s career closely from the very beginning, I would say he has been playing some of his best football recently, which has been great to see.

“He will do any job for the team asked of him by the manager and already this season has played up front, at the back and in midfield without hesitation. He is 36 years old but he is one of the fittest players at the club. Any young player should see the way Glenn trains and plays and look to replicate that if they want to progress and enjoy a long career at this level.

“He is closing in on 500 appearances for the club and he will be the first man in our history to reach that mark if he gets there, which I am sure he will. In fact, he would have got there by now had it not been for the pandemic, which saw us lose over a full season’s worth of matches.

“We have seen Glenn’s value in recent games and in just our last match there when we beat Rothes, he completely dominated the midfield and outplayed and outworked guys who are 10 years younger than him. We are all delighted to have him onboard for another season.”
