PARS stopper Sean Murdoch has signed a contract extension to keep him at East End Park until 2019.

The 30-year-old, who was already contracted to Dunfermline until the end of the upcoming season, has agreed to a prolonged deal that will ensure he reamins with the club for at least two more seasons.

Murdoch began his career with Athletic but left in 2008 for Hamilton Academical, after which he had spells with Accrington Stanley and Hibernian.

Allan Johnston brought him back to Dunfermline in July 2015 and immediately established himself as the number one during the title-winning League One campaign.

Although he missed the first six league matches of last season - and the entire League Cup campaign - Murdoch featured 36 times and recorded 10 clean sheets.
