Phillips extends stay

Multiple Player of the Year winner Gary Phillips has agreed a new deal which will see him stay at Shielfield Park during 2018/19.

Phillips has made 55 appearances for the ‘Gers since joining from Arbroath in January 2017. He has netted three times during that period, and will be hoping to add to his tally throughout the next 12 months.

The 30-year-old is one of the oldest players in the squad, and Manager Robbie Horn is delighted to still have that experience in the dressing room next season: “Gary re-signing is great news for us. He is one of the best guys I’ve worked with as a manager and was outstanding for me on and off the pitch last season. With the travelling Gary does to play for this club shows his dedication. He’s an experienced player in a young squad and hopefully his fantastic attitude can be an example to the young boys in the squad.”
