Craig Samson agrees new contract

Craig Samson has signed a new contract with the club today, which will see him ply his trade with St Mirren until the summer of 2020.

The stopper has had a remarkable season with The Buddies, helping them on their way to lifting the Championship title.

It was also a record breaking season for Samson personally, as he broke the record for consecutive clean sheets at home. From December till April he accumulated eight clean sheets in a row at the Paisley 2021 Stadium, defeating Craig Hinchcliffe's previous record of seven.

Samson said: "I am absolutely delighted with it. It's something the manager and I have been discussing for a few weeks now, since we knew what position we were in and that we were going to be in the Premier League next year.

It's been quite relaxed between the manager, myself and Tony to get things done today and signed. I'm absolutely delighted to be here for the next two years.

"When I came here, the aim was to get this club back in the Premier League and to get it done this year has been an absolute whirlwind of a year, it's been brilliant.

"Now to know I'm going to be here for the next two years, it's exactly where I want to be and I'm absolutely delighted about it. I had another year, but then the manager and I discussed it. I'm just looking forward to the start of it all again."
