Dunfermline boss Stevie Crawford feels that the decision of two key players to commit their future to East End Park shows that the club is going in the right direction.

Aaron Comrie recently signed a new two-year deal with the Championship side. He followed in the footsteps of Ryan Dow. Dow signed a new deal with the club before Christmas.

With Dunfermline currently second in the Championship, Crawford reckons that the future is bright for the club, and the new deals is proof of that.

“Club are moving forward”

“I think that we as a club are moving forward and steadily in the right direction” he said.

“We don’t see that there is a quick fix out there and the way that we are going about our business shows that we are serious about trying to develop players but develop the club as well. It is two fold” Crawford continued.


The Dunfermline boss also disclosed that he is hoping to make some signings in the January transfer window. He might consider using the loan market for that.

May bring in loan signing

The manager explained his feelings about the club can benefit from loan signings.

“I have always said that any players that we bring in on loan, a big part of it even if they are only here for a short spell, is that they go away with a feeling that they will probably want to come back here one day. I think the loan market is something that we will continue to use. But as I say we have not identified a specific at the moment” Crawford revealed.
