Inverness Caledonian Thistle can confirm that Tom Walsh and Angus Beith have joined the club while Jake Mulraney and Iain Vigurs have departed.
Tom Walsh joins the club from Dumbarton with Manager John Robertson saying: “I am delighted to capture the former Rangers attacker who can play in wide or central area in the team.
“Tom has played well against us this season and we feel returning to full time football will bring out the very best in him – developing in to a very important player. He is two-footed and an exciting player who can make and take chances and we are delighted he has come to us ahead of a couple of other Championship clubs.”
Angus Beith also joins the Caley Jags in a swap deal involving ICTFC Winger Jake Mulraney who heads to the Gorgie side. The club would like to wish Jake all the best with Heart of Midlothian and thank him for his efforts here in the Highlands and hope that he continues to have a fine career ahead of him.
Manager John Robertson said: “We wish Jake all the best and he is going to a big club with big ambitions and, if he can get his consistency levels higher on a regular basis, then he has an opportunity to succeed in the top leagues. It will be a challenge for him and one he should embrace because he has all the tools at his disposal to make an impact at a higher level.
“We are delighted to secure Angus Beith for ICT. He has been unlucky with a couple of injuries that has seen him drop down the pecking order at Hearts but has been excellent in loan spells at Stirling Albion and more recently at Stranraer where he netted 8 goals in 14 matches. Angus is comfortable on the ball and competitive in the tackle and he will be a very good addition to the squad and increases the competition in the midfield area.”
Also, the club can confirm that Iain Vigurs will join Ross County on a 3-year deal. Iain has been outstanding for the club and the fans can rest assured that the Board and the Manager did everything they could to persuade Iain to stay but, ultimately, were unable to do so such was his desire for a new challenge. Winning the Players Player of the Year and the Fans Player of the Year award shows just how greatly he was appreciated after a tremendous season on the pitch.
John Robertson said: “Whilst hugely disappointing that we could not persuade Iain to stay, I wish him nothing but the best in the future and he has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Iain is an outstanding talent and he has had a fantastic season playing in a team and a style that made him show his ability at the heart of the team.
“The awards he received at the end of the season shows how much he was appreciated by his team mates and the fans. Iain has been very open and honest about his future in our talks and he admitted it was a very tough and difficult choice to make and ultimately he has decided to leave. He will be missed but we now must get other players to step up and fill the void as we have done many times in the past.”
