Elgin City boss Ross Jack is delighted that his persistence in pursuing defender Ross McKinnon paid off when the former Motherwell kid opted to join his side last week.

Jack explained: “I know Ross from a loan spell he had at Alloa last season when he was really impressive. I made moves to get him last summer but he wanted to try Europe but I was using the internet to see how he was getting on.”

“It has been a long pursuit but I am glad to have finally brought him here and I am sure he will help us head for the Play-Offs.”
