The u20s squad continues to build and the third player to sign up for the new season is Forward, Alex Dean. Alex joins after spending half a season with the u17s, after a previous spell in the Ayr United youth ranks.
Alex is a Kilwinning boy and is really excited about the prospect of working with the first team:
“Buzzing, I can’t wait for the season to get started. Looking forward to the challenge of the u20s Development League. Hopefully I can make an impression and get involved in the first team and play alongside the likes of Carlo, Ben and Calvin up front.”
Manager Stephen Forrest spoke very highly of the young forward:
“Alex is a very versatile front man who operates in any of the front three positions. He is very pacy with an eye for goal. He has bags of potential to be a very good footballer. Alex came into the u17s mid season last year and scored or assisted in every game since. He’s a Kilwinning lad with a bright future in the game.”
