NEW SIGNING: Chris Johnston

Wed, 22nd May 2019 9:30pm

The club is delighted to announce its first new signing of the summer; Chris Johnston from Annan Athletic.

Chris, 24, is formerly of Kilmarnock, Raith Rovers and Dumbarton. He joined the Galabankies last summer and went on to play an influential part in their promotion bid, also being shortlisted for the PFA Scotland League 2 Player of the Year.

The winger, who also holds five caps at Scotland under-19 level, signed a two-year contract with The Bully Wee this evening.

Speaking to the official website, Danny Lennon said:-

"We are delighted to have signed Chris on a two-year deal. I have been an admirer of him since he burst onto the scene as a 17-year-old in the first team at Kilmarnock.

"At 24 years of age, we have signed a player who has nearly 100 appearances at Premiership and Championship level. He created the highest number of assists (19) in League 2 this season, was shortlisted for league player of the year and was voted into the league team of the year. His outstanding quality of play in the opposition's half is there for all to see and the facts speak for themselves regards his standard of final product in enabling team-mates to score, which was the best in the division.

"There is much more to come from Chris. We believe we can add more goals to his impressive number of assists in the way we will encourage him and coach him to play in the seasons to come."
