Peterhead manager Jim McInally was delighted that the ‘quiet period’ he had predicted in terms of re-signing players was broken when Jason Brown confirmed that he was ready to commit to a further two years at Balmoor.
Former Inverness Caledonian Thistle defender Brown has been with the club since 2017 and has made nearly 150 appearances for the Blue Toon since then with manager McInally delighted that the 24 year old has re-signed so quickly after a fine season.
Jim said: “Jason was a really big player for us in the season that has just finished. He was a regular in the centre of our defence and he played at a consistently high level. Whilst Gary Mackenzie was only with the club for a short while his influence on Jason was strong and Jason deserves credit for continuing to play the way he had with such an experienced defender after Gary left.”
“It is good to have him tied down for two years as he will develop further and become an even more important player for Peterhead. His brother Jordon being back with us was also a positive factor in our favour as the two of them are close and enjoy being in the same team.”
Another player the club are keen on keeping has agreed to remain and details of who that is will be released tomorrow.
