Blue Toon squad shapes up

Manager Jim McInally said: “I am delighted that Ryan and Andy have agreed to stay with us as they were important members of a squad that just missed out on promotion. Most of that squad have re-signed and I have 18 players committed for the new season.”

“I am still looking to freshen things up with a couple of new faces but I am having to be patient until the right players to be available.”

Bavidge has left Peterhead’s ranks after a decade of service that was marked recently with a Testimonial Game against Aberdeen and the 33 year old said: “I am leaving Peterhead with a great deal of sadness after some fantastic years at the club.”

“I still feel I have plenty to offer playing wise but leaving is the right thing for me to do just now.”
