The Gaffer is delighted to announce the signing of the experienced former Hawick Royal Albert, Edinburgh United and Pumpherston Juniors, player Raymond Fleming.
“Skinny” returns to Whitestone Park after a few years plying his trade away from the club but when we caught up with him he was delighted to be back in Peeblesshire. Raymond told us.
“Its great to be back. Obviously a lot of things have changed since i was last here, however the club still has fantastic characters behind it. I’ve known Ger for a while so when i got the call i was keen to sit down and hear his plans. There’s a lot of young players in the changing room and one of the first things Ger had said would be that my experience would not only aid the overall shape of the team but he felt it would also bode well for the younger guys going forward. Raymond went on to finish by saying. “I’ve only been around the club for a short period but the guys have been fantastic already. The club is trying to go in the right direction on and off the park and i’m now just excited to get going. ”
Ger followed this up by saying. “Ray coming in adds more than just experience to what we are trying to do. Playing with and against him, his attitude is always something I’ve admired. He’s the type of player that will never let you down and goes into every training session and game fully committed. Our young lads will learn a lot from him and he still has plenty to offer. Without a pre season behind him we are maybe a couple of weeks away from seeing how good the guy actually is, but already his levels have impressed not only myself but every one at the club.”
We wish you the very best for the season ahead Ray, welcome back to the club!
