Arbroath have handed player-manager Paul Sheerin a two-year extension to his contract after leading the side to the Division Three title.

It was the Red Lichties' first trophy in their 133-year history and brought with it promotion to Division Two.

Assistant manager Stewart Petrie has also agreed an extended contract.

"Now they are signed up, we will be concentrating on signing players and hopefully we can start doing that in the next week or so," said the club.

The 36-year-old Sheerin took charge of Arbroath last season after leaving St Johnstone.
