Squad is bolstered before league opener

Annan Athletic are delighted to announce the signings of two more players before our first league fixture kicks off.

Ex Rangers youth Darren Ramsay signs a one year deal at Galabank. 

20 year old Ramsay came through the Rangers youth system, making it to the U20’s before agreeing a 6 month loan deal at Arbroath FC last summer. That loan deal was extended in January after Darren impressed the Lichties boss but he was released by Rangers at the end of the season. He can play in a number of midfield positions including an attacking role.

Queen of the South agree loan deal for Aidan Smith.

19 year old striker Aidan Smith has joined the Black and Golds on a loan deal until January.

Dumfries born Aidan has really caught the eye in the Queens under 20 team. After firing in the goals at development level he was given his chance with the first team, and scored his debut goal at Ibrox to earn his side a point in a 1-1 draw against the Gers.

He has since made several other first team appearances for Queens and manager Jim Chapman is delighted to add more strength to his attacking options.

Both players will go into tomorrow’s match day squad.
