Patrick Reading signs for United

Ayr United are delighted to announce the signing of Patrick Reading on a two year deal subject to Scottish FA registration procedures.

Patrick is a highly rated left back who is a member of the Scotland under 21 squad. He joined Middlesbrough as a 13 year old before signing a professional contract in April 2017.

Since then Patrick has been in superb form for the under 23 side and signed for Stevenage in January.

Manager Mark Kerr said :” I think Patrick is the kind of player that our fans have really taken to in recent years. Someone like Michael Rose and Daniel Harvie who chose to move and try and get first team football. Patrick is strong and has really energy and pace down the left hand side. He moved to Stevenage in January however with everything that has happened with Covid19 we had an opportunity to get him to Scotland and are absolutely delighted to get the deal done. Some top names in football speak extremely highly of him and of course he has played with some of last seasons squad at under 21 level.”
