Winger gets home chance as Peterhead return to action

Sep 15, 2020

Dundee daft Derryn Kesson will get the chance to move closer to playing senior football at Dens Park tonight however he will be wearing the blue and white colours of Peterhead as opposed to the hosts. 

Broughty Athletic winger Kesson is on trial with the Blue Toon and impressing against his favourites in a closed-doors meeting will push Balmoor manager Jim McInally closer to offering the Scottish Futsal internationalist a chance in League 1. 

McInally said: “Derryn has been in training with us and done well. He was recommended to me due to his displays with Broughty however I need to see him in a game before we take things further. You can tell that he has played Futsal as he I really good on the ball and he can nip past people no problem.” 

“The game at Dens will let me see what Derryn offers both offensively and defensively. We are unlikely to have the majority of the ball so will spend a lot of time chasing their players. Derryn is a big Dundee fan and looking forward to playing at Dens but he knows that he is not going there just to make up the numbers for us.” 

McInally will take a squad of 16 players which will include further trialists however one-time Dark Blue Gary Mackenzie will not make his debut as he not fully over a knee injury with the Peterhead chief adding: “I am not going to rush Gary into playing as he has been out for a bit longer than the rest of the players. Isaac Layne will make his debut and I will try and give the trialists at least 45 minutes to show what they can do.”
