Berwick Rangers are delighted to confirm that terms have been agreed with Steven Notman that will see him extend his deal until the end of the 2015/2016 campaign.

Notman initially joined Berwick in a loan deal from Hibernian, playing a key part in the ‘Gers 2007 title win. Since then he returned to Shielfield on a more permanent basis and has been a mainstay in the starting eleven.

Recently making his 200th appearance for the club, he has also featured as captain a number of times this season.

With Notman currently sitting 19th in Berwick’s all-time appearance makers, player-boss Colin Cameron is delighted to secure the versatile midfielder’s experience.

“Notty has been a very consistent player for the team during my time with the club,” said Cameron.

“He is versatile in that he can play a number of positions, and I am pleased that he has agreed to a contract extension.”

While Innerleithen-based Notman is currently sidelined with a knee injury, the club have covered costs for a scan and are currently looking into the most efficient ways to get him back to full fitness ahead of the new campaign.

He now joins Blair Henderson, Jonny Fairbairn, Ross Drummond, Kerr Young and Cameron in extending their deals for the new campaign.

But two players who will not rejoin the club next season are Billy Bald and Craig Dargo, both of whom leave by mutual consent.

Goalkeeper Bald is currently out for the rest of the season with a broken hand, whilst Dargo had only played in a handful of games, mainly as a substitute.

The club would like to wish both the very best of luck in their respective futures.

Meanwhile, last week Berwick signed striker Chris Dillon on an emergency transfer until the end of the season. He made his debut as a substitute against Albion Rovers on Saturday.
