LYONS AGREES 12 MONTH CONTRACT EXTENTION
Blair Lyons has committed his future to Montrose FC for another 12 months, keeping him at Links Park until the summer of 2021.
Having signed a pre-contract back in January, the highly rated forward joined the Gable Endies in the summer from Lowland League side University of Stirling, where he finished the season as their top scorer with 16 goals.
The 22 year old has made an explosive start to his professional career with 3 goals from 13 appearances, including a crafty back heal finish against Dumbarton that was shortlisted for Ladbrokes Goal of the Week.
Manager Stewart Petrie said, “I am delighted Blair has agreed to extend his stay here. He came highly recommended and hasn’t disappointed. Despite our slow start to the season, he has consistently been one of our best players.
“This naturally attracts interest from other clubs, so it is great to see him make this additional commitment and I believe there is so much more to come from him.”
A product of both Aberdeen and Kilmarnock youth academies, the Glasgow born front man had short spells with Hamilton and Queens Park before moving to the US to complete a two year scholarship with Upper Iowa University, before returning to study for his Sports Science degree at Stirling University in 2017
