Profile:

Signed on loan from Ross County FC in season 2009-10 for an initial period of 6 months. The Thurso born youngster originally came through the Caithness United Youth System before signing with Ross County FC.

Like his brother David he is also very pacy and can weigh in with his fair share of goals, he is very adaptable in that he can play wide right or left and can also play in the striking role.

The fans appreciate his energy and willingness to work for his team mates.

Has had terrible bad luck with injuries over the last few years but is now fully fit and back to his best.
