Jim Goodwin is targeting "silverware" in the next three years after agreeing to stay as St Mirren manager until 2024.

The former Buddies player, 39, succeeded Oran Kearney in 2019 and has led St Mirren to a ninth-placed finish in last season's Scottish Premiership.

The Paisley side are currently seventh in the top flight and face Hamilton Academical on Wednesday evening.

"We've come a long way in 18 or 19 months," Goodwin said.

"Hopefully, if everything goes according to plan, I make St Mirren the top six team that I want to make them and we go and win a little bit of silverware over the next two or three years.

"If I do that, I might be given the opportunity to go and manage at a bigger club. But that's not in my mindset at the moment.

"What I'm thinking at the moment, first and foremost, is that we need to get top six this season."

Chief executive Tony Fitzpatrick told St Mirren's website former Alloa manager Goodwin "has been given one of the highest player budgets of any St Mirren manager and he is now the highest paid manager in club's history".
