Connor Greene will be staying at the club for a fourth successive season after becoming the latest Shire player to agree a contract extension until the end of the 2017/18 season.
The central defender, who turns 21 next month, signed for the club in the summer of 2014 after being released by Falkirk and since then has been an almost permanent fixture in the team at either full-back, or more regularly, centre-half and he is now the longest continuously-serving player at the Shire.
Connor has made himself one of the most popular players at the club and, despite a disappointing season last term, still ended it by picking up an end of season award.
His displays this season at centre-half, in partnership first with Andy Grant and now with Michael Oliver, have won high praise from the coaching staff and have been one of the main reasons why the team has conceded so few goals over the past couple of months.
Connor has also chipped in with some goals this season, including a 92nd minute game winner in the 2-1 home Lowland League victory over Dalbeattie Star in November.
Everyone at the club is delighted Connor has agreed to stay for another year. He joins strikers Andy Rodgers, David Grant and Paul Sludden who have also accepted terms for next season.
