Turriff United boss Kris Hunter is pleased to have re-signed Adam Cross ahead of tonight’s Highland League clash with Huntly.
The 21-year-old midfielder had left the Haughs club to work in Australia for a year but on his return to Scotland he has rejoined Turra, signing until the summer of 2022.
Gaffer Hunter said: “I’m delighted to get Adam back. We were disappointed that he left but we knew his situation.
“He got offered a chance to change direction by going over to Australia for a year.
“For someone of 21 he played a lot of games when I first came in, and before that.
“He’s got a lot of energy and he will make a big difference to us in the middle of the park. He can weigh in with a few goals and it’s excellent to have him back.”
Cross could feature against Huntly at Christie Park tonight as Turriff aim to return to winning ways.
Hunter added: “It will be a difficult game because they’ve been in good form in the last few weeks, including beating Buckie.
“We know they will be tough to play against and they are a big side who are good at set-plays, which we will need to watch out for.
“Adam coming in adds freshness to the squad and it’s a game both teams will be trying to win and pick up points.”
