Stephen Dobbie pens Queen of the South extension

Stephen Dobbie has signed a contract extension at Queen of the South, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2021.

Stephen Dobbie celebrates a goal earlier this season.

The striker, who scored 43 goals in all competitions last season as he clinched Championship player of the year, re-affirmed his commitment to the club he joined for the second time in 2016.

The 37-year-old told the club website: “I think everyone knows how I feel about the club so when they said about another year, it took just a minute to sort things out.

"I am delighted to get it done and to know that I will be here next season. I can now concentrate on winning games and scoring more goals for the club that I love”.

Dobbie has five league goals this season, with Queen of the South sitting in seventh.

Manager Allan Johnston was happy to secure the frontman's services: “It is great to get Stephen signed up on a longer deal. He is a talented player, a natural goal-scorer who many clubs would love to have in their squad.

"He is a big big player for us and we are lucky to have him. As well as his ability on the pitch he is a terrific person off the park and is an example to others and a credit to the club”.
