The club are now able to provide an update of the first team squad for Season 2021/22
The club can confirm that James Vincent, Kevin McHattie, Nikolay Todorov, Brad Mckay, James Keatings, Martin MacKinnon and Shane Harkness will be leaving us this summer.
Nikolay Todorov and Martin MacKinnon were offered improved contract extensions but decided to move on.
Brad Mckay and James Keatings have signed pre-contracts at other clubs.
James Vincent leaves the club after his second spell with us. Nobody will ever forget his Scottish Cup Final winning goal in 2015 which helped produce the greatest day in the club’s history.
Vincent leaves after receiving the Memorable Moment Award at the 2019 ICTFC Hall of Fame, for his Cup Final goal in 2015. He leaves the club a true Caley Thistle legend.
During his two spells with the club, James played 106 matches and scored 7 goals. We wish James all the best in the future and thank him for his total dedication while at the club.
Kevin joined us back in January 2019 from Irish side Derry City.
He went on to make 39 appearances for the club. Kevin suffered a couple of injuries while at the club but he remained a true professional playing in a variety of positions whenever required and never let us down.
We’d like to thank Kevin for his service to the club.
Brad spent five years at the club, joining in 2016, and made 164 appearances for the club and scoring 8 goals. During his time at the club, Brad won the Challenge Cup in 2018 and 2020 (joint with Raith Rovers) and he was also a key part of the defence in 2017 that set a clean sheet record of 708 minutes without conceding. The club thanks Brad for his service to the club.
James Keatings joined the club in 2019 on a pre-contract from Hamilton Accies and made 51 appearances and scored 12 goals for the club. We’d like to thank James for his service while a Caley Thistle player.
Nikolay finished last season at the club’s top scorer and joint Players’ Player of the Year. He was offered a new and improved deal but decided to move on.
Overall, Nikolay made 63 appearances for the club and scored a total of 18 goals.
We’d like to thank Nikolay for his service to the club.
Once again, we’d like to thank all the leaving players for their service while at the club and wish them the best in their future careers.
