Played a lot of premier league games for Utd and County.

Seems to play wide?

Looks a good addition.

a good pacey winger that we have lacked for a while. Think he can help out at right back if needed. Was one of league 2's best players last season. Surprised he dropped that far down.

This is what we can afford. Dow may have something to prove and was a hit at Peterhead.

Played mostly as a winger last season, shows we’re looking to play with width. Expect him to be rotational

Seems very versatile. Just what we need on a budget.
Premier experience at 1st/2nd division price canny be a bad thing.

Haven’t seen a lot of him, on a positive note it’s early, we’re active and it’s not someone on the Championship merry go round.

I think this is a good market to explore - guys who have played at a higher level but have maybe lost their way a wee bit.

We have 7 outfielders signed up for the first team. One of them (Thomson) will be unavailable for the foreseeable future. I really don’t think there’s a single area of the team we have “plenty of options” for!

Decent signing.
He's not someone on the Championship merry go round???
So... Are you suggesting we don't sign championship players?
Plenty of decent players on the championship merry go round every year.
Long term deals are hard to come by so always a lot of movement between clubs... Doesn't diminish their ability imo

If his favourite position is out wide e.g. he's a winger then happy days, definitely an area we needed to strengthen in from last season.

If he's an attacking midfielder who can play out wide, can play through the middle or play off the front man then surely we just let 2 candidates for this role leave? Higgy and L Longridge so wouldn't see the logic in that?

Don't know much about Dow so lets see what he's about, hopefully he's pacey, likes to stay wide and can deliver a good cross (and the occasional goal)I wish him all the best in a pars shirt.

When he was playing first team with Utd he was centre of a 3 man attack. Hes 5'9 so nae target man lol.

He came through the youths. Got farmed out on loan where he claimed he toughened up quite a bit, then he settled in the first team until he got injured. Farmed out on loan again and ended up signing for the loan team where he helped them to promotion and is very highly thought of.
Can he raise it to Championship level again?
Lets hope so. He will certainly be up for the challenge and he could be a good mentor to our emerging youngsters.
I think I read hes only 27. Plenty in the engine yet.

Looks like SC is starting to piece together his own team

Couple of interesting signings, which are hopefully the first of many who will be in place for the start of pre-season

If anyone has any reservations about Dow, would be good to hear them now because we'll hit a rocky patch next season, Dow will ultimately have a couple of poor performances and the experts on here will be out with the 'I told you so's ' and that the signing was always a stinker.

Can practically guarantee it.

Anyway, welcome Ryan!

Looks like a good signing to me. The good thing is that we are signing players early rather than very late or when the season has started.

Until this season has played his football in the top league aside from some loan spells. Could be a decent signing I reckon

"The good thing is that we are signing players early rather than very late or when the season has started"

getting the right players is the important thing not when they sign, yes you'd like to get all your 1st choices signed and in before preseason starts but that's never going to happen.
