PETERHEAD boss Jim McInally today said his patience had paid off after completing the loan signing of Cammy Kerr.
The Dundee full-back has returned to Balmoor on a short-term loan deal until January.
The 19-year-old was a big hit with the Blue Toon after spending the second half of last season on loan at the League One side, making 22 appearances and scoring three goals.
Kerr will go straight into Peterhead’s squad as they host Dunfermline at Balmoor on league duty this afternoon.
“I am really pleased to have signed Cammy again,” McInally said.
“It has been a long process to try to bring him back here.
“He was my number one target for the right back position so that patience has paid off.
“Regardless of the last couple of good results we have had, we have been makeshift at the full-back positions.
“He really made the right-back position his own when he was with us last season.
“I have spoken to him and he is just glad to get back playing again, especially somewhere he is highly thought of.
“Hopefully he kicks on and can do what he did last year.”
McInally confirmed that he expects Kerr to be his final piece of summer business.
He added: “I am quite happy with my squad now, so I am not expecting any more signings.”
Meanwhile, the Blue Toon have confirmed that defender Ryan Strachan is set to have an operation on an ankle injury next month.
“Ryan will go in for a quick tidy up soon and he will be good for the rest of the campaign shortly afterwards,” McInally said.
