Craig Gunn Signs For Wick Academy

Wick Academy are delighted to announce that a deal has been reached with Brora Rangers for the immediate transfer of Craig Gunn.

Craig's professional career started with Wick Academy in season 2003-04 when he made 31 competitive appearances scoring 25 goals. He left Wick after a single season for Ross County before having a year on loan at Peterhead, signing for Elgin City in 2009 and in his eight years there became their top scorer with over 100 goals. Craig finished his time at Elgin in May 2017 and signed for Brora last summer.

Wick Academy Manager Tom McKenna said: "I am really delighted that Craig has agreed to join us. He is a player of real pedigree, with pace and bags of experience.

"He is going to give us some real quality up front and I am sure he's going to be very successful in his time back here."

"We are all buzzing to have him back and can't wait to see him in action again at Harmsworth Park."

Academy Chairman James Innes said: "We're obviously very pleased that Craig has signed for the Club and it is just the Christmas present the fans deserve. We offered Craig a good deal in the summer and missed out on him, but the Club has moved on from then and I had a feeling he might be back to our boardroom table."

Innes thanked Brora Rangers FC for their professionalism regarding the transfer and went on to say: "My counterpart at Brora Rangers, William Powrie, drove a hard but fair negotiation and I'd like to thank him and his fellow directors for the manner in which the deal was concluded. Our Clubs are linked by our remoteness and although there can't be a more anticipated derby in the Highland League, it's also important that we co-exist as friends too."
