Hamish is good to go

Oct 22, 2021

Peterhead attacking midfielder Hamish Ritchie has come through an injury scare and will take his place in manager Jim McInally’s plans for the visit of Falkirk tomorrow.

The 24-year-old who scored in the recent games against Queen’s Park and Dumbarton picked up a leg knock in last Saturday’s success at Alloa and did not train fully earlier this week.

Balmoor boss McInally had pencilled Ritchie in as doubtful to face the Bairns however the former Inverurie Locos player is now running pain free and up for facing Falkirk.

Jim said: “Hamish was feeling the problem quite a bit after the Alloa game and as it had not cleared up by Tuesday, I had started to make plans to be without him this weekend.  However, he contacted me today to advise that he did some training on Thursday and is good to go.”

Not such good news is the continued absence of Alan Cook, Gary Fraser, Ryan Duncan and Jordon Brown with Jim adding: “It is disappointing to continue being four players down especially as it will be next month before we get any of them back.”
