Mitch Megginson has revealed he turned down Championship clubs to join Cove Rangers.
The former Aberdeen forward signed a three-year deal to join from Alloa Athletic on a free transfer.
The Highland League champions have also added Kevin Buchan to bolster an already impressive set of attacking options, with Johnny Smith, Dean Donaldson and Ryan Stott already at the club.
Megginson joins the team where his dad Mike became a club hero, playing 450 games in 13 years for the side.
Cove had the opportunity to break into League 2 but were defeated by Lowland League champions Edinburgh City, who went on to swap places with East Stirlingshire.
After coming so close last year, it looks like the club are gearing up for another run this season.
He said: “I think the expectation should be the same as last year, they have a great squad and a lot of talent.
“Last year the club came close to getting into League 2 and I think that should be the aim again, they were very unlucky not to get promoted last season and that’s a target we should look at this year.”
He added: “They have always been an ambitious club and that what attracted me to them and they have the plans for the new stadium, a very good squad and it gives me a chance to come back north.”
At 22, Megginson is now on to his seventh club and his third since last June. Since leaving Dumbarton a year ago, goals have proved hard to come by; at Raith, because of a lack of starts, at Alloa because of a positional shift and being part of a struggling team.
With a three-year deal signed and a top quality cast around him, the forward is hoping for a chance to realise his potential.
