Inverurie Locos boss Neil Cooper is hopeful more players will commit their long-term future to the club.
On Wednesday the Railwaymen tied down winger Colin Charlesworth on a new contract until 2021.
Goalie Andy Reid and defender Mark Soutar have also penned extensions until 2021 and 2023.
Cooper, whose team host Buckie Thistle at Harlaw Park in the Highland League tomorrow, hopes more players will sign up soon.
He said: “It’s our duty to be professional and get players signed up.
“We don’t want them getting into the last year of our contract if we can avoid it.
“We are speaking to players we want to keep just now and trying to get more signed up.
“Colin has done very well but he needs to be a little bit more consistent.
“We’re delighted he’s signed up and now hopefully he can push on and nail down a regular first-team place.”
Locos are looking to return to winning ways tomorrow, after last Saturday’s 5-2 Highland League Cup loss to Formartine.
Cooper is looking for better defending from his side and added: “We’ve done a lot of work in training this week. Defending is about communication and working as a unit.
“We’ve got Andy Reid in goal and the back four and they are a unit. They have to talk to each other, drop off at the right times, push up at the right times and defend one v ones in the air and on the ground.
“We’ve spoken a lot about that but, at the end of the day, it’s down to the players to carry that out.
“That’s something you can’t do for the players once the game starts.”
Elsewhere, Cove Rangers look to maintain their 100% league record when they play Clachnacuddin at Grant Street Park.
Manager John Sheran doesn’t expect it to be easy in Inverness but is hoping for a less stressful trip after a late arrival to Nairn on Wednesday night.
Despite that, the champions still won 1-0 and Sheran said: “Nairn was a hard-fought performance and a very welcome three points.
“At least for Clach we’ll be able to get properly prepared in terms of the travel times and stuff.
“I’m expecting another tough game. I’m sure Clach would have been there on Wednesday, watching us, so I’m expecting it to be another really hard game. It’s just a case of making sure we’re on the ball as far as that’s concerned.”
