Young And Evans Extend Deals

Morton have today announced deals to extend the contracts of Darren Young and Grant Evans.

Evans' loan from Hamilton Accies was due to expire at the start of January and has been extended until the end of the season, while Young, who signed a short-term deal in November after a three-game trial, also extends his stay until the end of the current campaign.

The news that Young has signed a new deal is particularly pleasing. The 32-year-old has been very impressive in his short time with the club, using his know-how and experience to control the middle of the park while aiding the development of his 20-year-old central midfield partner, Michael Tidser.

Evans, meanwhile, has had a few shaky moments in a Ton shirt but demonstrated his potential with a superb showing at right-back in the recent 2-2 draw with Ross County at Victoria Park. Allan Moore will be hoping for more of the same from the 20-year-old, particularly due to the fact that Stewart Greacen's recent departure means that he may have to fill in at centre-back if either of Marc Smyth or Stuart McCaffrey are ruled out through injury or suspension.
