Millar Gamble says the plan manager Ally Macdonald has given him convinced the defender to sign a three-year contract extension at Brora Rangers.
The 21-year-old defender committed his future to the club by signing a deal which will keep him at Dudgeon Park until 2027.
The former Scotland schoolboys international has impressed his manager to convince him to be part of his long term vision at the club and to achieve success this season.
Gamble, who came through the youth system at Inverness Caledonian Thistle, says he was impressed with what Macdonald had to say and is excited to be part of ambitious plans at the club.
“A good plan has been laid out for me from Ally and people from the club as well,” said Gamble.
“There was a real intent from them to sign me up, it is always an incentive to sign a new deal when you feel wanted.
“There is a good vibe around the squad as well. We are on a good run and have a good changing room with everyone pulling in the same direction.
“There is an ambition in the club to win trophies, that is what I want to do as well.
“I want to win as many trophies as possible and I feel Brora is the perfect place to do that.
“I am at an age at 21 where it is a crucial point in my career for my development.
“Ally was keen to lay out a plan for me and I was happy with what he was saying to me.
“We had the same point of view and I was happy to get all of that done.”
Brora Rangers return to Highland League action tomorrow when they take on Forres Mechanics at Mosset Park.
The Cattachs are in ninth place, but have only played eight league matches. They are eight points behind leaders Formartine United but do have three games in hand. Brora are also in the final of the Highland League Cup against Fraserburgh next month and are through to the third round of the Scottish Cup after beating League Two outfit Stenhousemuir 2-0 at Ochil View.
Gamble says the Scottish Cup second round win last Saturday showed the quality in their squad and are capable of major success this season.
“We showed towards the end of last season that we could pick up really good results.
“This season we have seen a lot of progress in the way we play. The new pitch at Dudgeon Park helps that.
“But the way Ally wants to play football, getting the ball down and play as much as possible, it is an attractive style and I can’t see how we wont be challenging by the end of the season.
“It will be good to get points on the table, we are a few points behind but I have no doubt we will be up there.
“We know that we have a good squad, there are plenty of players you look at and they would be more than capable of playing at that level. We would not look out of place playing in League Two.”
