Mark Ridgers

Hearts goalkeeper Mark Ridgers has signed a two-year contract, the Tynecastle club have confirmed.

The Scotland Under-21 international's new deal takes him up until the end of the 2013/14 season.

Ridgers has been with the Jambos since April, 2007, signing for the Edinburgh club from Ross County as a 16-year-old.

He made his international debut for Billy Stark's side in November when he helped Scotland pull off a shock victory over Holland in Nijmegen in their European Championship qualifier.

Ridgers, who has yet to make his first team debut for Hearts, had a loan spell at East Fife earlier this season and was named the Irn Bru Phenomenal young player of the month for September.

He becomes the second goalkeeper in recent days to extend his stay at Tynecastle, Jamie MacDonald having signed a similar length of deal on Friday.
