Stirling Albion are delighted to announce that forward Sandy Cunningham has signed a new contract that will keep him at Forthbank until summer 2016.
We are also pleased to confirm that midfielder Willie Robertson will remain at Forthbank for the rest of this season.
Sandy, who turns 20 in April, made his debut in a Scottish Cup tie with Deveronvale in November 2012 after impressing with our U19 team.
His major breakthrough came last season when he scored eight goals, including a stunning winner in the play-off final against East Fife at Bayview. Sandy has netted five times so far in 2014/15 and has been in excellent form of late.
Willie joined us from Alloa in the summer, initially until January, and now has the chance to add to his 14 appearances for Stirling Albion.
Binos boss Stuart McLaren said: “We are understandably delighted that Sandy has agreed to stay with the club through until the end of next season.
“In the relatively short period of time I’ve been in post he has made a positive contribution to the team’s improved performances. Just as importantly, he has demonstrated with his behaviour that he is an individual who fits with the culture we are building here at Stirling Albion.
“With Willie’s performances in my first few games in charge, and his general approach to his work, I felt he had earned this contract extension. He is a valuable member of the squad and I’m sure he will make a contribution to any success we may have between now and the end of the season.”
Chairman Stuart Brown added: “I’m delighted to have Sandy on board for next season and I’m sure that delight will be echoed by everyone associated with SAFC. I very much look forward to observing Sandy’s continuing development under the watchful and educated eyes of Stuart (McLaren) and Marty (Corrigan).
“It’s also great to have Willie extending his stay until the end of the season. He’s had his problems with indiscipline but I’m confident that the lessons have been learned and he will be a valuable member of the squad as we seek to retain our SPFL1 status.”
