Broughty Athletic JFC are pleased to announce that midfielder Jamie Winter has become Broughty’s third player to re-sign for the club this week, following on from Iain Ross and Frankie Lannen, on a two-year deal.
The former Leed United, Aberdeen, Chesterfield and Montrose midfielder signed for the Fed away back in 2013 and played an instrumental part in guiding the club into the Super League last season winning the two-legged play-off over Armadale Thistle.
Fed manager Keith Gibson was very keen to keep hold of his majestic midfielder and is glad that Jamie decided to stay on at the club after hearing his plans for next season in the Super League, after learning that several other junior clubs, and seniors, were waiting in the wings to capture his signature.
Here’s what Jamie had to say after putting pen to paper on his new deal for the next two years…
“It’s been a long hard decision but I’m pleased it’s over and I’m staying with Broughty. I had several clubs contacting me over the last couple of months, a couple of senior teams too, and I’m honoured to still be thought of by so many, but my heart is here at the club. I spoke with the gaffer at length, I liked what he had to say and what he wants in place for next season and I want to be a part of it.
We have a great club here, with great people working and helping out. We are hoping the new stadium and pitch starts to take shape early next year so exciting times are ahead on and off the field. We’ve had a great season in our first season in the Super League, and the gaffers aim is to improve on our ninth position finish next season and maybe a cup final.
I’d like to thank the clubs that have been in touch with me, looking for my signature to sign for them. I’d also like to thank Broughty for their patience whilst I talked over the clubs offer with my family. We now go into our summer break before we’re back early July for pre-season training at Whitton Park…”
All at BAJFC would like to thank Jamie for deciding to stay and wish him all the best in his next two years with the Fed.
