Jim McAlister signs contract extension

We are delighted to report that midfielder Jim McAlister has today signed a one-year contract extension to commit himself to the club until 10 June 2020.

Jim started his professional career here at Cappielow as a teenager and went on to make 272 appearances between 2002 and 2010, scoring 19 goals.

The 33-year-old moved to Hamilton Accies and then enjoyed three-year spells with both Dundee, with whom he won the Championship in season 2013/14, and Blackpool.

He returned to Greenock last summer and surpassed 300 appearances for the club by making 39 starts and one substitute outing before ending a memorable campaign as an emergency manager on the final day.

McAlister told www.gmfc.net: “I’ve signed a year’s deal and I’m pleased to get it all completed and to be staying with Morton for another season.

“The chats I’ve had with the manager have been really positive. He knows how to be successful in this league on a tight budget at Livingston, so hopefully he can bring that to Cappielow and we can be successful.”

Check back tomorrow for a full interview with Jim.
