TWELVE of Lossiemouth's Highland League squad have pledged their future to the Grant Park club.
Twin brothers Liam and Ross Archibald and defender Ally Bellingham, have penned deals to keep them at the club for the next three years.
Two-year extensions were signed by midfielder James Leslie and defender Lewis McAndrew, who has broken into the first team this season.
Fergus Edwards, Fraser Forbes, brothers Jared amd Niall Kennedy, Connor Macaulay, Ross Morrison and Ryan Stuart have put their name to one-year extended deals at Lossie.
The Coasters' match at Clach on Saturday could be in doubt with several Lossie players expected to be unavailable due to Covid issues.
Monday's match against Strathspey Thistle was postponed due to players isolated and manager Joe Russell rates this weekend's trip to Inverness as "touch-and-go".
"Between the isolation rules and contacts with people, Saturday’s game is doubtful," he said.
"We are just about on the threshold and I need to sit down and go through the numbers and see when people come out of isolation.
"We haven’t trained for a couple of weeks and one or two come out of isolation on Thursday or Friday.
"To come out of that and straight into a game without any training is a bit of a nightmare scenario for us.
"We have five or six affected at the minute. Some of our youth players have it as well so we don’t seem to have anything in the way of back-up."
