Queen of the South have announced that defender Andy Dowie has signer a new contract, keeping him at Palmerston Park for another year.
"Andy has been outstanding this season and to have secured him for another year is fantastic news.
"We see him as a key part of the squad and having already re-signed Chris Higgins, Derek Lyle and Iain Russell for another campaign is really positive.
"We also already have Ian McShane under contract, so things are starting to take shape for next season".
Three players have signed new deals at Queen of the South.
Captain Chris Higgins, top scorer Derek Lyle and his fellow attacker Iain Russell, have all agreed one year extensions to their current contracts.
The team's manager is hoping other players will sign in the coming weeks:
I'm delighted that the players have pledged their future to the club for next season, they have been key players for us and are big characters within the squad.
They have played a big part in the success that we have had so far this campaign and deserve the reward of an extension. Discussions with other players continue and I hope to get a few more tied up in the coming weeks."
Queen of the South's hopes for a play-off place at the end of the season received a boost last night after they won 3-0 at home to Glasgow Rangers.
James Fowler's side got off to a strong start, with Derek Lyle's goal giving them a half-time lead.
Lee Wallace's own goal, just 16 seconds into the second half, helped the Doonhamers push further ahead.
And before the final whistle Gavin Reilly made it 3-0.
The win moves Queen of the South above Falkirk to fourth in the Championship table.

Queen of the South Football Club has today announced that they have taken over the running of the King George V Centre in Dumfries.
The Astroturf and Fitness complex will use the same online booking system as the Queen of the South Arena, which will be up and running next week.
The Club hopes to develop the venue for their own good, as well as for the benefit of the community.
"Nothing will change for the next few months, but the building of the Queen of the South Arena has been great for Dumfries.
This is another venture for the club in their home town and with the help of the community we hope to make it a great success."
Queen of the South has announced that manager James Fowler has signed a contract extension that will see him stay at the club until the end of next season.

The Manager himself claims he is grateful to be able to extend his stay.
"I'm really happy to sign again, it's been an enjoyable year although very difficult and hard work but it's one I've enjoyed and I'm thankful to the Chairman and the rest of the Board for the opportunity"

Queen of the South have joined forces with a Dumfries-based food bank charity - and fans can now drop off donations on match days.
First Base Agency on Buccleuch Street is the town’s main food bank and in the past 12 months the charity says it has handed out 4,700 emergency food parcels.
To boost food stocks, the Queens Trust and supporters groups have teamed up with First Base Agency and set up collection points in the Queen of the South Arena for fans to bring donated food when they go to games.
"We're happy to have this joint initiative with the Trust and other supporters groups for such a deserving cause. Initially we will be accepting donations at the Arena on match days, and it would be great if supporters coming along to the game, could bring a little something with them."
Schoolchildren have been to see Queen of the South players as part of the H20 programme, run by Scottish Water, SPFL and the Doonhamers.
Each 90 minute session sees the children discuss the importance of staying hydrated, before taking part in a football session:
Last week, the first inter-schools under 15 girl’s football festival was held at the Palmerston Arena.
The tournament was run by Dumfries and Galloway Council in partnership with Queen of the South women’s football club, and five schools took part.
Organisers claimed "real talents" were shown by some of the participants.
The council says further festivals and competitions are now being planned to encourage more girls to play football for their schools and local clubs.
