We are pleased to report that Lee Kilday has today agreed a one-year contract extension that sees him sign up for a fifth season at Cappielow.

The 26-year-old joined the club from Hamilton Academical in July 2014 and helped the team to the League One title in his maiden campaign.

A versatile defender who can operate at both centre-half and right-back, Kilday was a regular in the Championship sides of seasons 2015/16 and 2016/17, reaching a total of 117 appearances in Ton colours.

An ankle injury saw him relegated to the sidelines for much of last term, but he returned to action during a loan spell at Airdrie and Ray McKinnon has now handed him an opportunity to make a full comeback in Greenock.

Speaking to media and communications officer Jonathan Mitchell, he said: “I’m delighted to sign Lee. He’s a very good player who knows the club, is very experienced, andĀ gives us great flexibility across the backline.

“He had his problems with injury last year and that was a consideration, but we had a good chat and he feels he’s 100 per cent over his injury – which he is – and is raring to go.

“He is very excited about the year ahead, so hopefully he gets a really good pre-season under his belt, gets in the team and shows us all what he’s got.

“We know Lee well from playing against us. He is a very good football player so we’re extremely happy to have him on board. We’re getting there and we’re going to keep adding to the quality of the squad.”

To sponsor Lee’s home or away shirt for season 2018/19, please contact our sales executive Lesley Ann by emailing la@gmfc.net.
