St Mirren have agreed a two-year contract extension until the summer of 2023 with Marcus Fraser after the defender’s stellar first season in Paisley.

The 26-year-old signed for St Mirren at the start of the 2020/21 campaign after a lengthy five-and-a-half year spell at Ross County, where he captained the Dingwall club and won the League Cup. He will hope to achieve silverware in black and white this season, the Buddies in Scottish Cup semi-final action this weekend against St Johnstone.

Fraser has played 45 times for Jim Goodwin’s team this term and the Irishman believes he could be St Mirren’s Player of the Year: “I am really pleased to get Marcus tied down for another couple of years. He has been a star performer from day one.

“He will no doubt be in the running for a Player of the Year award. It’s something we have been trying to do since the turn of the year, continue to extend the contracts of players who deserve to be rewarded. It’s another step in the right direction. These things don’t happen as quickly as you would like.

“People were going back and forth and everyone was trying to get the best deal for each other. But it wasn’t a difficult one to get agreed in the end, Marcus is very happy here. I am delighted with him and he’s a great professional and a great example for the rest of the group.”
