Peterhead have added to their playing pool by signing former Elgin City defender David Wilson on a two year contract. The 21 year old, who left Borough Briggs at the end of last season, has impressed Blue Toon manager Jim McInally during the last six weeks in training and, after a compensation package was agreed for a Training Fee, David put pen to paper to sign for the Balmoor side.
Jim said: “David has to be commended for his actions in terms of making sure he was available to sign for Peterhead. He has good experience, has good attributes, is at a good age to develop further and he has shown me already that he will add value to our squad.”
“He gives us more depth on the right hand side of defence and to get him signed up for the next couple of years is good business for everyone involved. He wanted to get back playing and now has the opportunity to do that.”
Wilson is added to Jim’s squad for the trip to face Queen’s Park tomorrow however he may not be thrown in at the deep end with the Balmoor boss adding: “David will be amongst the boys although asking him to play his first game in four months against the league leaders and away from home would be a big ask. I have not ruled it out and I will give it consideration but I have to be fair to him.”
