Dob­bie says: Deal me in

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE BACK PAGE -

Hot-shot Stephen Dob­bie signed a con­tract ex­ten­sion at Queen of the South un­til 2020 and in­sisted it was an “easy” de­ci­sion.

His pro­lific goal-scor­ing form has made him the top marks­man in Europe with an in­cred­i­ble haul of 24 goals so far this sea­son in­clud­ing four hat-tricks.

He agreed the new deal in mid­week and said: “I’m de­lighted to have signed an ex­ten­sion. It has all hap­pened quickly, but it was an easy de­ci­sion to make.

“Every­body knows how I feel about the club and the sup­port­ers and I’m lov­ing my foot­ball just now.”

Dob­bie ex­tended his Palmer­ston con­tract to the end of the 2019/20 sea­son.

Man­ager Gary Nay­smith said: “Stephen’s record speaks for it­self so it’s fan­tas­tic for the club and the sup­port­ers to know he will be with us for the next 18 months.

“His ex­tended con­tract is cer­tainly well de­served.”
