Two New Signings

Kinnoull have strengthened their squad even further with the signings of Keith Dewar and Gerard Kelly.

Keith has signed from North League side Blairgowrie.  The hard working midfielder impressed at Blair last season and should prove an excellent addition to the squad.

Gerard returns to Kinnoull after a 7 year absence.  The midfield/forward has most recently been playing at Scone Thistle and like Keith has shown up very well in the early part of pre season.

New Additions to Squad at Tulloch Park

In a stark contrast to last season Kinnoull keep a settled squad going into the new season.  16 of last seasons squad remain on the Tulloch Park books or have resigned which has given manager Gavin Price an excellent base to work from.

Added to this have been two promosing players picked up from the Amateur ranks.  Ryan Ward signed from Perth side St Johns, has been a stand out in defence for the succesful amateur side over the past few seasons.  At only 24 it is time for the 6ft 3 centre half to move up a level and we all hope he will enjoy his time at Tulloch Park.

Meanwhile midfielder/striker Richard Doig has signed from Burrelton Rovers.  Price has been chasing Doig for sometime after the 21 year old showed up excellently in a couple of closed doors games for Kinnoull last season against Kelty Hearts and Lochee Utd. 

Last seasons Player of the Year Lee Deans proved that players from the Amateurs can make the step up in some style, it is hoped Ryan and Richard can have a similar impact this season.

Veteran Striker Alex Bone has signed on at Tulloch Park until the end of the season.  The frontman brings with him a wealth of experience after an excellent career in the senior game.  Alex has played for a host of senior Clubs including St Mirren, Stirling Albion, Ayr United, Ross County, Peterhead and Elgin where he has scored over 200 career goals.

Goals have been something the 'Noull have found hard to come by recently and hopefully the addition of Bone will help resolve this problem.

20 year old Carr has been signed from Breadalbane FC.  The left sided midfielder was Breadalbane's top goalscorer last season and had been attracting the interests of other Clubs.  We hope David will make the same impact at Tulloch Park next season and wish him all the best at his new Club.

The manager has been busy over the past week trying to secure more signatures.  With a lot of potential new players coming to training this week it is hoped more players will put pen to paper soon.
