We are delighted to have completed a deal to bring Ross County winger, George Robesten to the club on loan until January.
George is a 17-year-old, left-sided player and featured for the Staggies in their visit to play us in a friendly match last week.
The English attacker spent his teenage years in Shetland and it was there he drew the attentions of Ross County, turning professional with the Dingwall club last summer.
Manager Steven Mackay was delighted to land the talented wide man. He said: “George impressed us with his performance for Ross County when we played them last week. I know he is really well thought of by their manager, Malky Mackay and his staff, so we are delighted to bring him in.
“He has pace to burn and we are looking for him to put that to good use in the Highland League. It is a great opportunity for George to come in and experience first team football with us.
“We have been missing Andrew Greig through injury since March and it looks like it will be a while until he is fit enough to play again, so we were a bit light in that area of the park. Bringing in George helps us to solve that problem and I am looking forward to seeing him play for us.
“I would also like to say thanks to Malky Mackay, Don Cowie and Stevie Ferguson for allowing us to take George in and trusting us with this stage of his development.”
George played in Ross County’s friendly match against Queens Park at the weekend, appearing as a second half substitute. He featured for us as a trialist in last night’s match against Inverness CT, coming on as a substitute at half time.
He becomes the fifth addition to our squad of the summer after Jamie Carnihan, Lewis Munro, Ben Kelly and Aaron Nicolson.
If you wish to sponsor George for the new season, drop us a message on Social Media or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
