David Barron has signed a contract extension at St Mirren that ties him to the SPL outfit until the summer of 2014.
The defender has struggled with injury in recent times, with knee and hip problems having sidelined him for much of last season and the start of the current campaign.
He has overcome those issues to become a first team regular once again and has now made over 100 appearances for the club.
Barron's previous deal with St Mirren was due to expire at the end of the season, but he claims it was a 'really easy decision' committing himself to the club for the foreseeable future.
"I'm really delighted to get things tied up again for the next two years," he told the club's official website.
"It takes a lot of weight off my mind as leading up to summer and you're out of contract it is a worry at the back of your mind.
"I'm now looking forward to the next two years especially with the ways things appear to be going at the club.
"It is really good to be back playing again, it makes a real difference even to your life away from football because when you are playing everything seems to go along fine.
"I think it is fair to say that I've had my fair share of injuries so hopefully now they are all behind me and I can push on, do well for St Mirren and get us to be where we want to be."
After returning to the team, the versatile Barron is now hoping to re-establish himself as Danny Lennon's first-choice right-back.
"I would like a good run at right-back which is my natural position," he said.
"To be honest, I've only played in that position about three times in the last three or four years as I keep getting moved about between left-back and centre-back but I really don't mind doing that as the important thing is to be playing.
"I've really enjoyed playing at centre-mid this year, which I didn't think I would be doing, so I wouldn't mind playing there but if given a choice I would like a run at right-back."
