The Comedy Stylings of Fontaine & Melbourne

Screen Shot 2015-09-17 at 5.17.41 AM

Sorry folks, couldn’t help myself, it just sounds like one of those “almost funny” shows from the black and white era of British television.  But seriously…

Ross County F.C. made two deadline day signings and they are defenders, Liam Fontaine and Max Melbourne.


Liam Fontaine, 32, joins County on a short term deal until the end of the season.  The well-traveled Englishman had been with Hiberian since 2014 after spells at Fulham, Yeovil Town, Kilmarnock, as well as almost 300 senior appearances with Bristol City.


Max Melbourne, 19, joins the club on loan from West Bromwich Albion until the end of the season.  Melbourne was made a few cup appearances for the Baggies, but otherwise has been playing for the club’s U18 and U23 sides.  Clearly he is being sent north to gain first team experience so I’d expect that manager Owen Coyle with have him in County’s line-up with as little delay as possible.

Let’s hope it’s enough…
