We are pleased to announce that Peterhead captain Scott Brown is staying at the Balmoor club after Falkirk pulled out of a move that would have taken the 25-year-old back to full time football.
The Blue Toon announced last Tuesday that Brown had agreed to a fifth season at Balmoor, however within hours the Bairns had been in contact about taking the 25-year-old to the Falkirk Stadium.
It was agreed that Brown could speak to the Falkirk management team of Lee Miller and David McCracken as Blue Toon manager Jim McInally had promised that the club would not stand in the way of a return to full-time football for the former St Johnstone man.
After discussions Falkirk dropped their interest with Brown moving on quickly as he explained: “It was great of Jim and the club to allow me to talk to Falkirk. They had always promised that they would allow me to return to full-time football if a chance came up and to do it just after I had agreed to stay was big of them.”
“However, the transfer never came off and that was that.”
“I am not down about it at all. I am proud to be the captain of Peterhead and delighted that I will be in that role for next season.”
Manager McInally said: “Scott had signed a new contract with us but we agreed that we would transfer his registration to Falkirk after they got in touch. It was a far from ideal situation for Peterhead however we would had given our word to Scott.”
“Unfortunately for Scott, Falkirk never followed through their interest despite discussions. Thankfully, Scott has a good relationship with everyone at Peterhead and will shrug off what went on.”
