St. Johnstone is delighted to secure the services of midfielder David Wotherspoon for a further two seasons.
The loyal servant to the club joined in the summer of 2013 from Hibernian and made an immediate impact in his first two matches, assisting both goals in the 2-1 aggregate win over Norwegian giants, Rosenborg - one of the biggest results in the club's history to date.
That season 'Spoony' was of course part of the Saints side to secure the club a first-ever major trophy, the Scottish Cup, with a 2-0 win over Dundee United at Celtic Park on May 17th 2014.
The Perth-born midfielder has played an influential role in helping the club to five top 6 finishes and will walk out at Hampden Park later this month as part of only the third St. Johnstone side ever to play in a League Cup Final.
The recent semi final win over his former club Hibernian was the Canadian international's 300th appearance in all competitions for the Perth club and has been a consistent performer under new boss Callum Davidson this campaign.
Upon signing a new deal, David said:
"I'm delighted. I feel settled here and it was a no-brainer in getting it signed.
"I've really enjoyed this season so far under the manager and it's been great. I've really enjoyed where I've been playing and my role in the team.
"I feel that we've achieved a lot at this club and we keep wanting to achieve more. And we keep pushing and we keep going for more silverware and more European nights - and that's what we want to do at this club.
"I feel the stability of the club seems to shine through a lot with a number of players playing here for such a long time through their careers. It's just a great place to play and I'm sure others will say the same that we really enjoy playing for St. Johnstone."
