New McNulty deal signed and sealed

Marc McNulty agreed a new contract today which will extend his time as a Livingston player until the summer of 2015.

The 20-year old striker was out of contract after his previous long term deal came to an end earlier in the summer and the new agreement brings to an end any uncertainty over his future.

A product of our own youth development system, Marc has scored a total of 27 first team goals over the last two seasons and has been a key player as we've re-established ourselves at First Division level.

Now, with the new season just days away, manager Richie Burke is delighted in the knowledge that he'll have one of the Scottish Championship's top marksmen at his disposal.

"I'm over the moon that 'Sparky' has signed again for two years - it's something that we've been hoping would happen for a little while," he said.

"We believe that our club is a good place for him to flourish and grow as a player, particularly with Marc learning from a player like Mark Burchill who has played at the highest level."

The opportunity to play alongside Burchill, a former Scottish international striker, was an important factor for the player too.

He said: "I played beside Beany [Iain Russell] over the last couple of seasons and I think he helped my game, and there's a massive amount I can learn from Burchy with all the experience he's got.

"Overall, I'm just delighted to get things settled. It's taken a wee bit longer than expected to get sorted but I'm fit and excited for the season to start.

"I'm focussed 100% on doing well and scoring goals for Livi."
