Watt a deal as Rovers keep top scorer Ian
Watt’s 35 goals helped Rovers reach the last 16 of the Scottish Junior Cup and launch a strong bid for promotion from McBookie.com Central Division 2 before they ultimately missed out by a single point.
Rovers match reporter Craig Martin said: “Keeping Ian was one of our main priorities this summer.
“He’s the first player to score over 30 goals in a season for Rovers in the past decade.
“Ian has a fine attitude towards his football, plus great strength and vision.
“He is a great acquisition.
“Every year there has been interest in Ian from other clubs, as he could definitely play at a higher level.”
Rovers manager Colin Slater – who at time of going to press was in contract discussions with four other Rovers stars – hopes Watt can fire the team to promotion next season.
Craig added: “It is promotion we are after.
“Going up to a higher league makes it easier to keep players and get new ones to join.”
