Inverurie Locos have signed Dundee United goalkeeper Ryan Booth on loan.
The 18-year-old joins the Highland League side until the end of the year.
Manager Scott Buchan confirmed Booth would go straight into the matchday squad for this weekend’s game away at Clach.
The Aberdonian shot-stopper has been brought in to compete with Scott Mathieson for a starting spot.
Buchan was “delighted” to bring the youngster on board and praised Booth’s “good attitude, commitment and a hunger to improve”.
He added: “I have been looking for another goalkeeper to come in to challenge Scott for the number 1 position since the summer and now we have that.”
