St Johnstone defender Aaron Comrie has revealed he received plenty of good reports before joining Peterhead.
The teenager has started both games since joining the Blue Toon at the start of the year.
The right-back will be with the club until the end of the season and joins along with fellow Perth Saint Liam Gordon.
Comrie helped the Blue Toon to a clean sheet on his debut against Brechin and also impressed against Livingston last weekend.
The defender is looking forward to getting more first team football and feels the move could help him grow as a player.
He also revealed reports he received before his Balmoor move were positive ones, with Blue Toon faces past and present filling him in on life in League One.
Comrie said: “I was delighted when I had the chance to come up here.
“I know a few of the boys, I know Scott Brown and he’s told me how good a football team they are so I’m excited.
He added: “He just said it’s great. The boys at St Johnstone as well, Ally Gilchrist was up here too, he had good words to say about Peterhead, the manager and the style of play.
“It was a bit of a no-brainer when the opportunity came up.”
Manager Jim McInally has been looking to strengthen his squad after a difficult campaign thus far.
The Peterhead boss is still on the look-out for players at the attacking end of the pitch.
He seemed to admit defeat in the battle to re-sign on-loan Celtic defender Fiacre Kelleher after Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Livingston.
But the addition of Comrie and Gordon will be a massive boost to the side’s chances of pushing up the table.
Comrie played 21 times for Montrose in League Two last season.
And for the 19-year-old, the opportunity to get more competitive game time was vital to his decision to join the club.
He said: “It’s a lot better than playing under-20s football, it’s great being able to play competitive League One.
“It’s a step up from where I was last year and I just hope to do well, play a lot of minutes and go back to St Johnstone at the end of the season.”
Comrie also believes Gordon will be a huge help to the side’s defence when he returns from injury.
He added: “Liam is a big guy, he’s solid at the back, he’ll win headers and I think he’ll fit in really well.”
