Brown Signs Two Year Contract
1st July 2021
The Football Club is delighted to announce that James Brown has signed on a two-year contract.
James, a 23-year-old defender, spent the second half of last season at McDiarmid on loan from Millwall but the move is now permanent.
He is thrilled to be back at Saints until the summer of 2023 and looking forward to the new campaign.
James told us: "Being a part of St Johnstone last season was a very special experience and winning the Cup Double was absolutely incredible.
"As soon as the gaffer (Callum Davidson) made it clear he wanted me I was excited to get a deal done. I wanted to come back for more.
"We have now completed everything and I thank the gaffer, the Chairman (Steve Brown) and Scott Boyd for putting a contract offer to me.
"The pre-season work is now well underway and we are all looking forward to getting the friendly games started ahead of our opening SPFL Premiership clash at Ross County.
"We also have European football to look forward to and we can't wait for the draw later this month to see who we get.
"This is a great time to be at St Johnstone and I will push myself every step of the way to play my part.
"The gaffer and his coaching staff are great to work for. There is a first class work ethic and they strive to improve all of the squad.
"The team spirit is also special and it's a pleasure to come in here every day."
