Parish signs for another year
The Football Club is delighted to announce that Elliot Parish has signed a new one-year contract.
Elliot, 32, has pledged his future with Saints until the summer of 2023.
Elliot was a fantastic understudy to Zander Clark last season, making seven appearances. His most notable appearance being the victory against 3rd placed Hearts at home, a result that helped us go a long way in surviving relegation.
Elliot is delighted to have committed his future to Callum Davidson's squad and he said: “I spoke with the manager numerous times and Paul Mathers; I’m looking forward to being part of a new dressing room next year.
“The decision to stay was down to both myself and the club. We had a tough year last year and we have to make sure next season is better.
“Last season was probably the longest season I have ever been a part of, spanning over 11 months in the end. Obviously, it was very disappointing where we ended up. Yes, we were successful staying up but its not a game you want to be involved in. This year it is very much back to the drawing board and aiming for the top-six and some good cup runs again.
“You look at the likes of Liam Craig, it’s gutting to see him retire especially with the career he had and what he could probably still give. There is going to be a lot of new faces in the dressing room. I’ve been here for 3 years now and I have grown to love the club. We still have a good nucleus of a squad here with the likes of Stevie May, Murray Davidson and Liam Gordon and David Wotherspoon. It will now be a case of welcoming any new faces that come in.”
