New signing Cameron Eadie believes Peterhead is the perfect place for him to develop.
The 20-year-old has joined the Blue Toon on a one-year contract for next season.
The young defender thinks Balmoor is the ideal place to develop his game while also helping the Buchan team challenge for the League Two title next term.
Eadie believes the experience of fellow defenders Mick Dunlop and player-defensive coach David McCracken can help him.
Eadie said: “I’m still young and I’m still learning a lot of things about the game. “There are a few experienced players in the same position as me such as David McCracken and Mick Dunlop. “They’ll help me learn and progress.
“I’m looking forward to working with the likes of McCracken again. “He helped me at Falkirk a lot and Cracks being there was another pull towards the club because he is going to help me progress further as a player.
“I will need to try to perform to a high level week in, week out once I get a chance. “Hopefully I can impress the gaffer and stay in position.
“I think after just missing out on promotion last season we will be really going for it this year.
“With the squad we’ve got I think we’re capable of doing it. “That was another attraction for me because they were up there and I know we’ll be trying to be up there again.”
For Eadie it was an easy decision to join because he had heard plenty of good things about the Blue Toon from other players.
He added: “I was looking for a new club and I’ve experienced playing against Peterhead. “I know what they are like and I’d heard a bit about the professionalism of the club as well and I’m excited to get going because I’d heard a lot of good things about the club.
“There are a lot of other good players throughout the squad and I’ve been really impressed with the squad all round.” Eadie is the fourth signing made by boss Jim McInally this summer.
The Balmoor gaffer is still aiming to bring in more players. A five-figure bid for Elgin striker Shane Sutherland has been rejected and former Queen of the South striker Derek Lyle looks set to join Linfield.
