Ross County have announced that two young players have put pen-to-paper on modern apprenticeships.

Jamie Williamson and Jayden Reid have signed two-year deals that will see them train full time with the Staggies during the next stage of their development.

First team manager Don Cowie commented: “It is fantastic to be able to bring the two apprentices in on a full time basis. Having come through the club’s academy myself I know how big that first opportunity to train full time is.

“Jamie and Jayden are two that have impressed the academy coaches and now make the transition into the first team environment.

“Massive credit must go to the parents, coaches and volunteers who have been involved in the development of the pair and the role they have played in developing them into the young adults they are now.

“We believe they will embrace their new environment and continue to improve and develop.”

Academy manager Gary Warren added: “It is brilliant to see the two boys being offered terms on a full time basis, they have worked extremely hard during their time in the academy.

“They are both hungry individuals and pushing themselves in a first team environment will only help them going forward.

“These boys follow the likes of Josh Reid, Ross Munro, Dylan Smith, Andrew MacLeod and George Robesten who have all taken a similar pathway in recent years.”

Williamson’s name in particular may already be familiar to Ross County fans, as the teenager came on as a substitute during extra time in the Staggies’ dramatic play-off victory over Partick Thistle last year.
