Transfer Window Round-up
The signing of Kerr McInroy concludes our business in the January transfer window.
Head Coach, Lee Bullen says: “We are pleased with the players we have brought in this window. We highlighted the fact the squad was imbalanced in certain areas when we came in and now we have competition for places in most areas of the park which is great. When you get that in a squad it can only benefit the group as a whole.
I’ve been really impressed with the attitude of the lads we have brought in, their desire to put themselves in the firing line, roll their sleeves up, help us towards our targets will only benefit us as a football club”
Managing Director, Graeme Mathie says: “It has been great to support Lee in adding to the squad, his clarity and engagement in the process has been of great value when we have discussed potential targets.
I’d like to thank the board for their backing and support in this transfer window and to Tracy McTrusty, Nick Provan and Keith Glendinning. This is always a challenging time to do a lot of business but their professionalism and endeavours have allowed us to bring in 5 new players, in addition to promoting Fraser Bryden from the U18s.
What is consistent from all the players who have joined is the hunger and desire they have to be here and play for Ayr United and I know they are all looking forward to performing in front of the supporters in the coming weeks.”
