Forrest signs as Mick departs

Alan Forrest today penned a one year deal as Ian McCall starts to shape the squad for the 2017/18 season.

Alan has now made over 150 appearances for United and made his Scotland under 21 debut during last season.

Manager Ian McCall said :”I am delighted to get Alan signed up as this is a huge year for him. People forget that he is only 20 but he still has the experience of over 150 games. I think going full time will be a huge benefit for Alan, we all know he has incredible technical ability and training full time will give him the opportunity to improve his physique, pace and other aspects of his game.”

Forrest was the clubs top scorer during the 2016/17 season in the Championship.

Also today Michael Wardrope has been released by the club.

Manager Ian McCall said :”There is no question Mick is being let go with some regrets. I have no doubt he could play in League One but that area of the park is an area I expect us to be very strong in. The problem with that would be that his game time could be limited and I know he has been frustrated at that previously. I genuinely feel that moving on is the best for Mick, he’s a great boy and he goes with all our best wishes.”
