Peterhead to give Kesson a chance

Aug 25, 2020

Peterhead manager Jim McInally is to give one of the most sought-after talents outside of senior football the chance to make an impact in the SPFL after offering Broughty Athletic winger Derryn Kesson an opportunity to win a deal with The Blue Toon.

Kesson, who has been capped three times for the Scottish Futsal national side, will join up with the rest of the Balmoor squad when they return to training next week with McInally delighted to give the fleet-footed attacker the chance of securing a professional contract.

McInally said: “I have known about Derryn for a while, as have a lot of clubs, and as he is now out of contract, I have had talks with him. He has been looked at by clubs at various levels but he does not have the best disciplinary record on the park in the Juniors and that may have held him back.”

“The disciplinary issues seem to come from players stopping him playing anyway they can however, he is maturing, and knows that we would work with him if there is a problem.”

“I am pleased that he is going to come in and show what he can do.”
