Dunfermline Athletic

Five New Young Recruits

Monday, 13th Jun 2022

Dunfermline Athletic are delighted to welcome five new young recruits to East End Park. 

The players, four of which are local lads, have signed 2 year modern apprenticeships with the club and have undergone day one of pre season training.

James explained, “I’m delighted to have Calum, Andrew, Sam, Jake and Michael join the first team squad for pre season.

There is nothing better as a manager or a fan than seeing some of your own on the pitch. Training with the first team will give the lads a chance to impress and with hard work and dedication, along with the guidance myself and the staff, we believe we can have a good group of players representing the club in the years to come.”
