PARS fan favourite Kallum Higginbotham has signed a new contract with the club.

The 28-year-old has put pen to paper on a fresh one-year-deal to stay at East End Park for the upcoming season.

Boss Allan Johnston brought the midfielder to the club after he was transfer-listed by Kilmarnock at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

Higginbotham has scored 17 times in 86 appearances for Athletic since his arrival.
