St. Mirren signed Jim Goodwin to a new year contract Thursday, locking up its captain through the summer of 2014.

Goodwin, 30, started his career with Celtic and later played at Stockport, Scunthorpe, Huddersfield, Oldham, and Hamilton before joining St. Mirren last January.

Capped once by the Republic of Ireland, the midfielder was a target of rival Hibernian this winter.
