As promised, we bring you up to date on where we are with player recruitment for the coming season. We had hoped to have at least some of these in place sooner so we could have included a word from the players, but we'll do that as soon as they are back from their summer break.
We are pleased to confirm that deals are now complete with Aaron Doran (2 years + 1 year option for the club), Lewis Horner (1 year) and Alex Fisher (6 months with 1 year option for the club).
In addition, we have those from our existing U20’s squad who we’re proud to see making the step up to the 1st team squad with their first pro contracts. They are Ali Sutherland, Cammy Mackay and Jason Brown.
We are also delighted to confirm the latest additions to the U20’s squad who were introduced to the fans ahead of our game against Dundee FC last weekend. They are Stephen Foster, Ryan McRitchie, Liam MacDonald and Keir Smith.
Other players with offers out to them at present are Iain Vigurs and Owain Fon Williams.
Due to Miles Storey’s age and the transfer regulations we were unable to speak, or make an offer, to him until very recently. The club made the best offer we could, but Miles has decided that his future lies elsewhere.
The two pre-contract agreements mentioned in our last update remain a work in progress and, as with the players under offer mentioned above, we'll bring you further news as soon as we can.
