Kyle Magennis named as new club captain

St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce that Kyle Magennis has been named as new club captain.

Kyle takes over from Stephen McGinn who departed the club following the expiry of his contact. 

The 21 year-old captained the side last season when McGinn wasn't selected and will now take on the armband permanently.

A product of the St Mirren Youth Academy, Kyle, who has made 107 appearances for Saints, said on social media: "Delighted to be given this opportunity at this great club. It’s a massive honour for me and for my family given that I joined this club at five years old.

"Hopefully we can all be together soon and look forward to a successful season."

It was also announced yesterday that Sam Foley has been named as vice-captain.
