Peterhead manager Jim McInally has secured the services of his top transfer target this summer with Hamish Ritchie agreeing to join the Blue Toon on a two year contract from Highland League Inverurie Locos.
The 24 year old needs no introduction to Balmoor after a stand out loan spell over the closing months of last season during which he scored four times with Jim saying: “I am delighted that our negotiations with Hamish and Inverurie have had such a positive outcome. Hamish did really well here over the second half of the season and I am glad to continue working with a player who shone almost 12 months ago against us in a pre-season friendly and I have been keen on ever since.”
Peterhead General Manager Martin Johnston said: “Peterhead FC are delighted to announce that Inverurie Locos midfielder Hamish Ritchie has penned a two year contract with the club after all three parties reached an agreement for his transfer earlier this week.”
“The club would like to thank Inverurie Locos for their patience and cooperation throughout our negotiations ensuring that the whole process was concluded in a professional and amicable fashion.”
