Gable Endies Strengthen Defensive Options
Montrose FC have signed youngster Neil Martyniuk on a Development loan from St Johnstone FC until the end of the season.
With Matty Allan’s season coming to an abrupt end last week through injury, manager Paul Hegarty has once again moved quickly to replace the centre half.
Neil started his professional career in the Hibernian youth system in 2012. Following a short loan spell at the end of last season with Berwick Rangers, the 19 year old joined St Johnstone in July.
The Edinburgh born centre half is sure to settle in quickly at Links Park as he will be in the company of fellow St Johnstone loanees Jordan Millar (goalkeeper) and Aaron Comrie (fullback).
Paul said, “We are grateful to Alec Cleland and everyone at McDiarmid Park for their ongoing support. The Saints U20 team is doing really well this season and we are benefiting hugely with the form and confidence we are seeing from Jordan and Aaron. I look forward to seeing Neil develop in the same way as he steps up to League Two.
