Livingston have confirmed that manager David Hopkin will remain in charge next season despite the club's relegation to Ladbrokes League 1.
The former Scotland midfielder took over from Mark Burchill but was unable to prevent the Lions from dropping out of the Championship after a play-off defeat to Stranraer.
A statement on the club website read: "We are delighted that David has agreed to stay on, as the uncertainty of change has historically been a negative factor in the club’s fortunes, and continuity is one of the main objectives of the Board of Directors.
"The Club is also delighted to announce that it will retain its full-time status, and the Board has further committed to underwrite the forthcoming season with the aim of achieving an immediate return to the Championship. This remains an integral target for everyone at the club."
Meanwhile, Livingston have snapped up Airdrieonians defenders Alan Lithgow and Sean Crighton for next season, with midfielder Ryan Currie penning a new deal at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
