Today marks the first of what I’m sure will be many updates to the Ross County roster over the coming weeks. I’ve held off on posting anything until now because I a) wanted to make sure there had been enough “movement” to make it worthwhile, and b) you’d be surprised how difficult it can be to find out the contract status of some players! So, here is what I know (italics representing what I “think”), some additional comments about several of the players in question, and then I’ll briefly dip my toe into the pool of the most persistent rumors.
Richard Brittain: I seem to remember that he signed a two year contract with the club and I find it hard to believe that, after signing a pre-contract agreement with St. Johnstone before last season and then changing his mind and remaining at County that Brittain would have only signed on for a single season, but I can’t find the evidence, so for now I have him as “out of contract.”
Thanks to RossC (via Twitter) for the clarification on Richard Brittain’s contract- he signed on for two years after changing his mind about moving to St. Johnstone.
Dingwall, Ferries, MacKillop, & McCleod: All are young players who have signed one year senior contracts with the club. Of this group I believe only Dingwall has played for the first team.
Steven Ross: His loan at Brora Rangers in the Highland League is over, but I don’t know if he has returned to the club or is now out of contract.
Once again, I refer you to the title of this portion of the post…
Here are the names that keep popping up on my transfer rumor radar (TRR):
As always, corrections (especially ones with evidence to support them) would be appreciated!
Until the next time…
