Martin Boyle extends his Hibs contract

Martin Boyle's long, successful stint with Hibernian FC will continue until at least 2024 after the club announced he has signed a new deal to remain in Scotland. 

The Socceroos forward has been in top form over the last 12 months, with his best goalscoring season with the club firing them to a historic third-placed finish last time out. 

After bagging a goal and assist for the Socceroos during June's World Cup Qualifiers, he returned to Scotland and picked up exactly where he left off, scoring five goals in as many games to kick off the new season in style. 

In the wake of the announcement, Boyle shared his excitement at securing the fresh contract. 

“It’s a great feeling to agree a new deal at a football club that means a lot to me and my family," he told Hibernian's website.

“I think everyone can see how much I’m enjoying it here and how my own game is benefitting from that.

“As a team we’re always looking to improve and that’s key for me. Everyone can see the desire from the club, the players, and the management staff to progress and challenge for trophies and European football; that excites me and that’s where I want to be.

“If we keep working hard, then hopefully we will be able to create more highs than the ones we’ve already had.”

Hibs' Head Coach Jack Ross, who also recently re-signed with the club, added: “Last season, his numbers for goals and assists were outstanding, and he’s started exactly the same this season as well. You can tell he’s feeling good and he’s right at it.

“For me, he’s as good as anyone in this country in his position, and long may it continue because he’s a major asset for us.

“He’s also a really good character, brings energy to the club every day, and works really hard for the team. He’s a player of real quality and a really good person for us to have at this football club.

“I’ve had long conversations with our new CEO Ben Kensell about building something here and he has been hugely supportive in aiming to keep our best players at the club.”
