New Signings – Ryan Dow and Ryan Strachan

Peterhead Football Club are delighted to announce that Ryan Strachan and Ryan Dow have returned to the fold and have signed on for the new season.

The announcement of the signing of 31-year-old defender Strachan, who was with the Balmoor side from 2009 to 2017, was delayed until he had minor surgery on a heel problem picked up during his four-year stint at Cove Rangers.

Strachan played over 270 games for Peterhead in his first stint with manager Jim McInally saying: “Ryan and I spoke shortly after last season ended and it was agreed that he would come here. He may have been facing a delayed start to the season due to his surgery so we decided to keep things quiet until that was done.”

“That has gone well and he is now working in getting himself ready for the new campaign. He has the experience we were after and I am pleased to have him back.”

Attack minded Dow spent most of title winning season 2018/ 19 on loan at Peterhead from Ross County with his form for the club securing a return to full time football for the one-time Dundee United player at Dunfermline where he has spent the past three seasons.

McInally said: “We faced serious competition for Ryan however after being involved in a few training sessions with us he has opted to continue his football career at Peterhead. He is a good attack minded player and again another one joining the squad with good experience.”

“It has been a frustrating time trying to get these deals agreed and announced but I am sure that the fans will agree that it has been worth it.”
