We are delighted to announce the loan signing of Partick Thistle player, and local lad, James Penrice.
James can play in a variety of positions, but predominantly down the left and in defence. He will give us that little bit of defensive cover we have been lacking for the last 6 weeks.
Manager David Hopkin said “I’m delighted to bring James in as he always impressed me when playing against us with East Fife last season.
“He can play in a variety of positions – left back, left wing back, left midfield – and he’s also played left centre half on a few occasions. James will give us a bit of cover in the defensive area which we have been lacking. He is a very good player and a will fit into our philosophy at the club of young, energetic, hungry players who are good footballers.
“I’m looking forward to working with James, as technically he is very good. Plus he’s a local lad and I’m sure he’ll relish pulling on his hometown club’s jersey.
“James will have to bide his time and wait for an opportunity as the boys that have been playing have been outstanding of late. But it’s a long season, and he brings a bit of competition for the lads already here.
“I’m really happy with how the squad has shaped up and the quality of the lads within it. We have a very good balance which hopefully will stand us in good stead for the forthcoming season.”
