The Ugandan international defender has extended his contract with the Motherwell until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The Uganda defender, 25, joined the Fir Park club in September 2019 and has made 35 appearances in claret and amber.

Manager Graham Alexander, who took over as boss from Stephen Robinson in January, told the club’s official website: “We’re delighted Bevis has agreed to extend his stay with us at Motherwell.

“We’re delighted Bevis has agreed to extend his stay with us at Motherwell,” manager Graham Alexander said of the deal.

“We’ve been really impressed with his contribution since January, both on and off the pitch.

“We can also see the potential for him to get better and continue to help the team achieve future success.”

Bevis, who has been capped 10 times by Uganda, has been a key figure at the heart of defence for Motherwell in the 2020/21 campaign, although injury has restricted his outings of late.

He gained international attention when his jump to head in the winning goal against Ross County in January was recorded at 262cm, with a leap of 75cm, breaking a record set by Cristiano Ronaldo for Juventus.
