Queen’s Park can today confirm the signing, subject to international clearance, of 28-year-old forward Simon Murray.
Simon started his senior career at Montrose before joining Arbroath in 2014. The experienced striker enjoyed spells of Premiership football at Dundee United, Hibernian and Dundee, before making the switch to Bidvest Wits in the South African ABSA Premiership. In all competitions, Simon made 28 appearances for “The Clever Boys”, scoring 8 goals.
Head Coach Ray McKinnon said: “This is a massive signing for the club and a real statement of intent regarding our ambitions. To be able to bring in a player of Simon’s calibre is hugely satisfying, and I would like to offer my thanks to everyone at the club who has worked hard to make this happen. Simon is a proven goal scorer who is humble and hard working. He has really bought into what we want to do at the club and I’m just delighted to have him on board.”
After training today, Simon said: “It feels great to have joined the club. I’ve been speaking to the manager over the last couple of weeks and it’s pleasing to get the deal done. It’s clearly an exciting time and I’m excited to be part of it. The ambitions of this club and where the club are looking to go were the driving factor in my decision to choose Queen’s Park and I can’t wait to get going.”
Welcome to Queen’s Park, Simon!
