K&D Chairman, Scott Jackson, said he was delighted that Ness had committed to the club.

"Craig has been in charge since we took over the club and has been a vital part of the clubs development,” he said.

"From where we were at the bottom of the old junior leagues, to this season up challenging at the top end of the East of Scotland Conference A culminating in a top four finish and earning promotion to next season’s Championship.”

“We have gone from a team of whipping boys conceding an average of 6-7 goals a game, to a team that has this season gone on an extraordinary winning run of 15 games and currently with only one loss in the last 18 games.

"Our only defeat since October 2021 being a narrow defeat against league winners Haddington and much of that has been down to Craig's management and leadership."

He added: “He has built a strong loyal squad many of whom have already committed themselves for the seasons ahead and we look forward to our journey with Craig at the helm.”
