The duo have joined Stewart Petrie's outfit who last season reached the play-offs.

Both meen had a taste of Scottish Premiership football last season, following successful loans in the Highland League at Brora Rangers in the first half of the campaign.

Wright memorably scored the equaliser in our 3-3 draw with Rangers in January whilst Mackinnon made his Premiership debut in County's 3-1 victory over St Johnstone in February.

Manager Malky Mackay said, “This is the next step in the development of both Adam & Matthew. It is vitally important that we have a pathway for our talented young players to eventually pull on the Staggies Jersey. Partner clubs are key to the development of our players and the Highland League & SPFL divisions are a great test for them.”

“I would like to thank Stewart Petrie and the staff at Montrose for their professionalism in this process and look forward to watching both players test themselves in League One.”
