Veteran striker Stephen Thompson has signed a new 12-month deal with St.Mirren, to help with the Paisley side’s challenge for promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

The 36-year-old scored four times last season for St.Mirren – who were relegated from the Premiership – in what was an injury ravaged year.

After signing his new deal, Thompson speaking to the official club website he said: “After the disappointments of last year I am super motivated to make sure I enjoy this season and help St Mirren challenge in the Championship.

“Last season was hugely disappointing missing half the season through injury but with a good pre-season behind me and having worked really hard over the close season I am confident I can be an asset to the team.”

The former Scotland international started his career with Dundee United, before spells with Rangers and Cardiff City. Thompson signed for the Buddies in 2011 from Burnley and has scored 52 goals in 146 games during his time in Paisley.

Manager Ian Murray added: “I am delighted to have Thommo on board for the season ahead. I know him very well having played together in the past and know he will be a big goal threat for us in the new season, and his experience will be invaluable for the younger players.”

Meanwhile, Murray has signed Scott Agnew from Dumbarton, with the 27 year old midfielder signing a one year deal.

Scott Agnew said: “I am delighted to have signed for St Mirren today. I had a few offers from other Championship Clubs both full-time and part-time but the possibility of coming to St Mirren with the facilities the Club have and to follow my old gaffer to Paisley was one I couldn’t refuse.”

Murray commented: “Scott has the quality to step up to full-time football and do well at St Mirren. I am delighted to have Thommo on board for the season ahead.

“I know him very well having played together in the past and know he will be a big goal threat for us in the new season. His experience will be invaluable for the younger players.”
