Development Squad

Wednesday, 25 October 2017 12:43

A couple of supporters in the 1984 Lounge at half-time last night were asking about the background of some of the players in the Development Squad this season.

Obviously some of the more senior players in the squad such as Jason King, Michael Kennedy, Murray Mackintosh, Greg Warwick, Jamie Gill and Matthew Aitken are relatively well known to the fans through their involvement within the first team squad.

However we have taken the opportunity to list below a short resume of the younger element.

JACK ALLAN – Seventeen year old Monifeith based midfield player who joined the ‘Loons’ this season after a spell within Dundee United’s youth set-up.

MAX AVOLLIO – Nineteen year old Burrelton based forward currently also farmed out on a temporary transfer to Scone Thistle Juniors.

KYLE CLARK – Nineteen year old midfield player who lives at Padanarm and joined up at Station Park this term after a few seasons with Dundee.

SAM CLARK – Nineteen year old defender who hails from Arbroath which we do not hold against him.  In his second season with Forfar, he is also farmed out on a temporary transfer to Arbroath Vics.

JOSEPH JOHNSTON – Eighteen year old forward who resides in Scone.   First season with the ‘Loons’ having previously been on the books of St. Johnstone.

FRASER KEMP –Sixteen year old locally based midfield player in first season at Station Park.

PAUL MORAN – Nineteen year old left sided Dundee based defender who played a few games both this season and last as a trialist, prior to signing last week following his release by Lochee Harp.

FRASER MORRISON – Just turned nineteen and in his second season at Station Park, Fraser who lives in the ‘Fair City’ is also on loan to Scone Thistle.

JACOB OTTO – Seventeen year old goalkeeper who resides in the Granite City, he spent last season with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

CONNOR SAMSON – The nineteen year old Dundonian is a defender who joined the ‘Loons’ last term and is another who also plies his trade in the junior world on at a Saturday  with Dundee North End in this instance.

BEN SHARKEY – Seventeen year old Cheshire born striker who now lives in Kirriemuir and is in his first season with the club.

RYAN STIRTON – One of the ‘elder’ citizens of the squad Ryan in his second season with the ‘Loons’ and who lives within a ‘stone’s throw’  of Station Park is central defender who is also a regular in Forfar West End’s back line where he is on loan.
