Striker Signs On

Striker Signs On

James Gray has become the third player recently to commit to another 12 months at the club.

The 20 year old striker will now take his spell at the club to two seasons and he talked with the Official Site about his time here and his excitement at the new managerial appointment.

He said firstly that it had been difficult with Leam Richardson leaving as their was an air of uncertainty at the club, but as soon as Beattie took the job he rang Gray and said he wanted to keep him at the club and he was really pleased with what the new gaffer had to say.

'He spent hours with me on the training ground last season trying to improve me so I was delighted to hear he wanted me to sign for next season. It was a no brainer for me.'

In his first season Gray made 19 appearances and found the net twice, as well as being called into the Northern Ireland U21 squad, so he has plenty to build on.

'Next year I won't be an unknown, I'll have that little bit of experience. I can't wait for the season to start.'
