Today we have completed the signing of defender John Treasurer. The 24-year-old from Fort William has featured in our opening two pre-season friendly matches as a trialist and has impressed enough to earn a one-year deal at Station Park having left his home town club at the end of last season. Manager Ronnie Sharp said: "John has done well in training and in the two games he has played for us since coming in on trial. Having him tied down will now allow him to settle in more and give him the confidence to push towards being in the team come the start of the season. "John is a strong and quick centre half and gives us another option in that area with Calum Howarth being ruled out through injury. He is a good communicator and has shown that from early on in his time training with us. He is the sort of character who wants to learn and take on board what he is being coached, which will hopefully bode well for him. "We are delighted that he has agreed a deal to join us and we look forward to working with him over the course of the season." Director of Football, Graeme Macleod, added: "John has shown a real desire to come and join us from day one. "He contacted us over the close season to ask if he could come along to pre-season training with a view to earning a deal. All the reports we got of John were positive, so we took him in and gave him a chance and it is one he has made the most of. "He has shown great commitment to travel up and down the road from his home in Fort William to training and now that the manager has seen him in a couple of game situations, we have decided to hand him a deal. "John brings a lot of experience to the table despite still only being 24 and we are pleased to now have him on board." John started his career at Inverness CT before joining Fort William in 2013 for the first of two spells at Claggan Park. He moved on to Strathspey Thistle for a season before returning to Lochaber, where he has spent the last four seasons, including taking over the club captaincy. He has now agreed a deal with us which keeps him at Station Park until the summer of 2022.
