Star midfielder extends stay

Star midfielder Keaghan Jacobs has committed his immediate future to Livingston by signing a new two-year contract.

Jacobs, a product of the club’s youth development policy, has been a lynchpin of the Livi side for the last three seasons, clocking up well over 100 appearances.

And he will remain part of John Hughes’ first team squad until the summer of 2014, after agreeing new terms.

News of his new contract follows on quickly that of team-mate Bobby Barr, who agreed to extend his stay at the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium last week.

Livingston FC chief executive Ged Nixon expressed his delight at securing another of the club’s players on a new deal.

He said: “We believe that we have an excellent young side with great potential at Livingston and we want to keep as much of it together as possible with future seasons in mind.

“We see Keaghan as a key player in the squad and we’re absolutely delighted to reach agreement with him on a new contract.

“He’s capable of playing at a higher level and our hope is that he’ll achieve that with Livingston.”
