Peterhead have signed goalkeeper Jack Newman on loan from Dundee United for a six-month period with the 20-year-old expected to make his debut against Aberdeen on Sunday.The Blue Toon lost Brett Long and Lenny Wilson during the summer when they turned down new contracts and Balmoor boss Jim McInally is delighted to be going with the six foot two ex-Sunderland shot-stopper Newton who has been involved with Scotland at an under-18 and under-19 level.
Jim said: “I am delighted to get Jack onboard as he comes highly recommended by the coaches at Dundee United. It is a win-win situation as we were needing a goalkeeper and Dundee United were looking for a club for Jack to go to and gain competitive experience. They have seen the positive work we have done with Kieran Freeman and Flynn Duffy in recent years and want Jack to develop in the same way. He will be involved straight away.”
