DUNFERMLINE striker Andy Ryan has agreed a new one-year deal with the club.

As revealed by Press Sport today (Thursday), the 24-year-old - whose existing contract was due to expire at the end of this month - has put pen to paper on fresh terms, which have the option for a further 12 months extension.

He becomes the seventh Pars player - following on from Ryan Scully, Cammy Gill, Lewis Martin, Stuart Morrison, Paul Allan and Thomas Bragg - to commit his future to the club.

Signed from Airdrieonians in August 2017, Ryan netted twice on his debut and went on to score another six goals in his first season at East End.

But, after netting five times by October last year - the last of which came in a 2-0 win at Falkirk - he was out of action from November due to a hip problem.

He returned to action as a substitute during the final game of the season, a 1-0 loss at Inverness, but will now aim to become a regular in Stevie Crawford's new-look side next season.

A total of 15 players have left the club so far in the close season, while Crawford has added Ryan Dow, Aaron Comrie, Kyle Turner, Matthew Bowman and Gabby McGill, whose arrival from Middlesbrough was also announced today.
