Welcome Alex Ferguson

We are delighted to confirm the loan signing of highly-rated St Johnstone youngster Alex Ferguson for the season.

The youngster is ear-marked by Saints’ manager Callum Davidson as a terrific prospect and has already handed the 17-year-old his senior debut for the first team. A midfielder, Alex is already building a reputation for being very comfortable with either foot and extremely skillful.

ECFC TV caught up with Gary Naysmith who was happy to have brought in another player to his new-look squad:

“Firstly I must thank St Johnstone, and in particular Callum Davison for allowing Alex to join us on loan for the season ahead. There was a lot of interest from other clubs in taking Alex on loan so I think it says a great deal about our club that everyone involved at St Johnstone thinks that Edinburgh City is the right club to help with the next stage of Alex’s development. Although he is still only 17, Alex has already made his 1st team debut at St Johnstone and is someone who they have high hopes for. Alex will increase and strengthen our options in central midfield and I am looking forward to starting to work with him when he reports for training on Tuesday.”

The new man with the famous name commented:

“I’m delighted to sign on loan for Edinburgh City and can’t wait to get get to work and be a part of the matchday squad. I’m hoping to hit the ground running and play as many games as possible for the Club, hopefully helping their push for promotion which is something they have been doing over the last few seasons.”

Welcome to the Club Alex!
