Ross County F.C. today announced that they had signed former Patrick Thistle F.C. goalkeeper Scott Fox to a two year contract.
Fox, 27, began his career in the Celtic F.C. youth system but never played for the first team. While on the books at Parkhead he spent time on loan at East Fife F.C., and after leaving Celtic he had brief spells at Queen of the South F.C. and Dundee F.C. (where he was a victim of the club going into administration), before signing on with Patrick Thistle F.C. in 2010. During five full seasons at Firhill he was the club’s first choice goalkeeper whenever healthy and was instrumental in seeing the club to the 2012-2013 First Division championship and promotion to the Scottish top flight.
During his time at Patrick Fox’s play was good enough to draw the attention of Scotland boss Gordon Strachan, who invited him into several national team camps even though Fox did not make any appearances for the national team.
It remains to be seen who the club will bring in as the second goalkeeper.
