Livingston FC is pleased to announce that midfielder Scott Pittman has signed a 2-year contract extension which will see him remain at the club until at least June 2023.
Having joined the club from Bo’ness United in February 2015, Pitts has gone on to play 227 times for Livingston, scoring 32 goals – more than anyone else currently at the club. Only Keaghan Jacobs has played more games than Pittman.
It’s fair to say that Pitts has pretty much seen it all in his time with the club. A Challenge Cup success in which he scored in the final, last day survival in his first season, relegation to League 1, a League 1 winners medal at first attempt, Premiership play-off success in which his goals proved crucial, a first ever victory over 9-in-a-row champions Celtic and a 3rd successive season in the top flight – not bad in the space of 5 years!
His new deal will now see him play his football with the club for a total of 8 years – a fantastic achievement!
Head of Football Operations David Martindale said:
“I’m delighted to say that Pitz has signed on until 2023. For me, Pitz has been absolutely massive for the club over the last 5 seasons.
“He is pivotal in the way we play and such low maintenance on a daily basis whilst continuing to bring so much to the team on a regular basis.
“I brought Pitz into the club back in February 2015 having played in the centre of midfield with him previously myself at Broxburn Juniors for a few seasons.
He has taken the jump at every level in his stride and, in my opinion, would be a player that any outside of Celtic & Rangers in this country, would be interested in if available.
Like I say, really delighted to get Pitz over the line – letting him focus on his football while giving him a little bit security for his family.
It always makes it that little bit sweeter when it’s a local lad playing for his local team too.”
