Berwick manager Colin Cameron has revealed the reasoning behind his decision to get some players signed up to the end of the 2015-16 season.
Cameron, who himself has agreed a contract extension for the same period, has signed up full-back Ross Drummond, central defenders Kerr Young and Jonny Fairbairn, and striker Blair Henderson until next May.
“I think it is important that we get some players signed up as early as possible,” he said.
“I have been looking at those players I think are capable of playing in the first division, if we were to go through and qualify from the play-offs, and with that in mind I will probably be speaking to a few others over the coming weeks.
“It takes a lot of uncertainty away. The players know what is happening and they don’t have to worry about their future over the summer.”
