Goalkeeper Dylan Maclean has become the latest member of our squad to agree a new contract.
The 26-year-old shot stopper has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the 2024/25 season.
We are delighted that Dylan has agreed to extend his stay with us having regained his place in the team for Tuesday’s derby win at Clachnacuddin, marking it with a clean sheet. The new deal will take him up to a decade of service with the club and gives us a big boost ahead of welcoming Banks O’Dee to Station Park tomorrow.
Manager Steven Mackay said: “Dylan’s attitude has been outstanding since we have come in and although he has not played many games due to his wedding, his appetite to work hard and to improve has impressed us a lot.
“We are looking forward to continuing our work with Dylan and now that he is back in the team, it is down to him to do everything he can to keep his place.”
Maclean follows in the footsteps of Fraser Dingwall, Gussie Dey and Callum Maclean in agreeing a new contract over the last week. Mackay added: “We are delighted that four key players have agreed to commit another two years to the club.
“It is important as a management team that we have stability at the football club and the players are aligned in what we are looking to achieve for the remainder of the season and the upcoming seasons. All four players will play a vital role in helping us to achieve those objectives.”
Dylan joined us in August 2015 and after a season as a back-up, he was thrust in us our new number one at the start of the 2016/17 season, with his performances that year earning him the Supporters Player of the Year award, a feat he repeated last season.
So far, he has made 131 appearances for the club, keeping 24 clean sheets, which puts him in third place in our all-time list just four behind second-placed John Campbell with Callum Donaldson out in front on 55 clean sheets.
