We can confirm that we have agreed a fee to release Jonathan Page from his contract. Jonathan joined East Fife in September 2014 on loan from Dunfermline Athletic, making his debut in a 2-0 victory against Arbroath that month, before making the move permanently to Bayview for the start of the 2015/16 League Two title winning season. Pagey featured in every game that season, scoring 5 goals, helping secure the title and was rewarded by being voted into the PFA Scotland League Two Team of the Season alongside teammates Nathan Austin, Kyle Wilkie and Gary Naysmith.
Jonathan signed on again for season 2016/17 where he featured on 37 occasions, scoring twice, before picking up a season-ending injury in March 2017 with many arguing his absence probably cost us a shot at a play-off spot. His impressive form pre-injury saw him again voted by his peers into the Scottish PFA League One Team of the Season.
Jonathan signed a new two-year deal last summer but missed the first part of the season recovering from injury and illness before making his comeback against Queen’s Park in September. In his four seasons at Bayview, Page made 139 appearance and found the net on 11 occasions, last of which coming on the last day of the season against Stranraer.
In a message Pagey said:
“I would like to take this opportunity to sat thank you to everyone at East Fife FC. I hope it has been obvious how much the club has meant to me over the last four season and I am proud to have worn the black and gold shirt. The warm welcome and support shown to not only me, but also my family, was very special and will not be forgotten.
For a mixture of footballing and personal reasons I have decided to move on and I am grateful to the chairman and the board of directors for allowing this to happen.
Throughout my time at Bayview they have had the interests of both the players and club at heart. Finally, I would like to wish the fans, background staff, players and everyone connected with East Fife FC the very best of luck in the future”
We would like to thank Jonathan for all his efforts over the last four seasons and wish him the best of luck for the future.
