ROSS County has confirmed that three of the promising products of their youth system have put pen to paper on year-long contract extensions.
Local lads Archie MacPhee, Steven Ross and Alex Cooper, who are all under 21, have committed their future to the Victoria Park side as the club prepares for its debut season in the SPL.
Derek Adams, who was named as the PFA Scotland's manager of the year, has been pleased by the progress the trio have shown.
He said: "Archie, Stevie and Alex have all worked really hard this year not only in training here at Ross County with the first team but whilst playing on loan for other clubs this season.
"Stevie has got great experience playing at both Brora and Forres whilst Archie and Alex are both going to be involved in the Third Division play-offs with Elgin City.
"There's no substitute for playing in tough competitive leagues and all three have shown a real desire and willingness to improve as players and that is what has earned them their new contracts."
We'll have the latest from the County camp in this week's Ross-shire Journal.
