The colonel will return

Kilmarnock FC can confirm that Jack Sanders will extend his stay at Rugby Park by signing a new one-year contract, pending SFA approval. 

The 24-year-old joined from Wigan Athletic in 2021 and went on to play an important role in the club’s promotion-winning season.

Jack enjoyed an impressive spell up North with Cove Rangers last year, playing every minute of their 12 league matches after joining in September 2022, before being recalled for Killie’s end of season run-in.

Commenting on his new deal, Jack said: “I’ve had really positive discussions with the manager over the Summer, so I’m delighted to extend my stay at Kilmarnock.

“Last season was a real learning curve for me and I’m pleased that I managed to contribute in the last few games of the campaign. I’m motivated to play a more integral role for the team next season, which I’m confident will be a successful one for the club. The fans have always been brilliant with me and I hope they will see me playing my best football in the blue and white stripes next term.

“Kilmarnock is full of fantastic people and everyone here is so supportive. It’s an honour to be part of this great club.”
