Loanhead native Jon signed up for Rovers in the summer and has added crucial experience to the midfield. A winner of the Scottish Schools Cup at Ibrox when at Paradykes Primary, he went on to play for Loanhead Miners Welfare as an attacking midfielder and was picked for the East Region Select. Raith Rovers came calling but an unfortunate cruciate injury put Jon out of the game for over 3 years. He got back playing with Penicuik u21s before a successful amateur career with Loanhead for 5 years where he won numerous leagues and cups along the way. A period out of the game followed as family life took over but he jumped at the opportunity to get involved with Colin Smith’s side in July. Jon is loving being back involved in the game, getting back to full strength and fitness under the coaching team and being one of the ‘old heads’ in the team to help guide the young squad in a league full of experience.
