SCOTT TAGGART admitted he didn't think twice about signing up for another season with Alloa.

The former Dumbarton and Morton full back became the latest to put pen-to-paper on a one-year extension as Jim Goodwin's summer business stepped up a gear.

Taggart was one of three Wasps to play every minute of football for the part-timers last season – alongside Andy Graham and Neil Parry – and was an integral part in the side's Championship survival.

The 27-year-old told Advertiser Sport: "I am delighted to be back on board for another season and this was always the place for me.

"I was never going to leave and just wanted to get the deal done.

"It's just a great club and most of the core of the squad have been there and make it a special place to be.

"It was just a no-brainer for me to sign up for another year.

"After staying up last season, this was always the easy option for me and the club is like a family to me."

Taggart joined the core of the squad in signing up for another season at the Indodrill Stadium.

The likes of Graham, Kevin Cawley, Steven Hetherington, and Iain Flannigan have already agreed new deals with the only disappointment being Jordan Kirkpatrick's departure for League One Forfar Athletic.

On the pitch, Taggart found himself excelling at centre back towards the end of last season in place of the injured Sam Roscoe and insisted he was happy to play anywhere if it helped the team.

He continued: "I enjoyed the last few games and was just happy to help out the team.

"I am just happy to play, no matter where it is. You can see that in a number of our boys that they are flexible and can play in a lot of different positions.

"Jon Robertson fitted in at right back and looked pretty flawless.

"The fact so many of us have already signed on is just testament to the club and the way it is run from top-to-bottom.

"You could probably make more money playing in a league below, but some people don't understand how good a club it is until you've been here.

"It is everything from the changing room to wee Pat (Dunne) the kit man.

"I just can't speak highly enough of the team."

But, Taggart is under no illusions Alloa's bid to stay in the Championship next season will be any easier than before.

He said: "The target will be to survive and the boys will be able to take the belief from last season.

"I am a firm believer that you will end up where you deserve to be."
