DUNFERMLINE full back Aaron Comrie has signed a new two-year deal with the club this afternoon.

The 23-year-old, who joined Stevie Crawford's side from St Johnstone in the summer of 2019, has committed his future to the club, with his existing contract set to expire at the end of the season.

The Kirkcaldy-born player, who hails from Glenrothes, is the second member of the Pars squad to agree fresh terms in as many weeks, following vice-captain Ryan Dow signing a one-year contract just before Christmas.

Comrie, who made the switch to Perth from Celtic's under-17s in 2015, has become a key player in Crawford's team, having played in all but one of Athletic's matches before last season was brought to an early halt.

This time around, he has played 11 of Dunfermline's 16 games so far and, speaking after putting pen to paper, Comrie said: "I'm delighted, over the moon.

"I've loved my time here so far and, to get a bit of security in these current times, is brilliant for me.

"I'm looking forward to the next two years."

Head Coach Crawford commented: "We're delighted to get Aaron for a further two years.

"He's a player that has come in and improved in his time with us. I think he would be around about the 40-odd games mark I think, and the important thing for me was that Aaron was keen to sign, and he believes he can get better."
