Peterhead captain Scott Brown has signed a new contract with the club.
The Blue Toon skipper has agreed a new deal to stay at Balmoor for a fifth season.
The midfielder joined the Buchan outfit in August 2016 following his release by Premiership side St Johnstone.
Since then Brown has been a mainstay of the Peterhead midfield, with the 25-year-old racking up 159 appearances during that time and helping them win the League Two title in 2019.
He has netted 21 goals, eight of which came last term, as he finished as Peterhead’s top scorer when the season was cut short in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Brown also assumed extra responsibility in January when manager Jim McInally handed him the captain’s armband following the departure of previous incumbent Rory McAllister.
McInally is pleased to have his skipper committed for next season – which is set to begin on October 6 with the League Cup – with the Championship, League One and League Two kicking off 11 days later.
The Blue Toon boss has also been impressed with how Brown has conducted himself since becoming captain.
He said: “We’re all delighted that Scott has signed a new contract.
“He’s been a key player for us during his time with the club.
“Last season Scott stepped up to become captain and impressed me in that role.”
McInally has said in the past that he believes Brown could play at a higher level than League One.
McInally added: “There’s been interest in Scott from full-time clubs and I think he could play at a higher level than League One so we’re lucky at Peterhead to have him at the club.”
