Can also play in defence. He joined Montrose in July 2015 and has now made over sixty appearances scoring three times this season

PAUL WATSON (Midfield)
Club captain Paul managed only six games for the club last season due to injury but has proved his fitness in pre-season to be rewarded a new one year contract.

His first two spells came on loan from firstly Arbroath in season 2009/10 and then from Forfar Athletic the following season.

The 19 year old midfielder has been part of the Development squad at Pittodrie since July 2015 after being released by his home town club Swansea City. Nurtured under the Welsh team's passing regime, Dylan’s technical attributes are second to none and he brings a tenacity to midfield with an excellence for retaining possession.

Eventually breaking into the Blue Brazil first team, Liam made 26 appearances before moving to Gayfield last summer.
Despite featuring 13 times this season for our Angus neighbours, most of these were from the bench and when Mo boss Stewart Petrie came calling, Dick Campbell was persuaded to give the youngster a chance at Links Park.

Having spent the first half of this season on loan to Junior outfit Broughty United, Kerr returned to The Loons at Christmas, but has failed to force his way into Gary Bollan’s plans.
