Inverurie Loco Works have announced the capture of their former forward David Ross following his release by Peterhead. The former Don left Harlaw Park six and a half years ago and has joined the Red and Blacks on a 12 month contract.
David left professional football to focus on his long term career goals, graduating with a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Management from RGU in July last year. Chairman Eddie Innes commented – "”We are delighted to welcome Davie back to the football club and his signing continues a hectic summer of transfer business at Harlaw Park”. David's signing creates further competition in the frontline, he is a player comfortable on the right side of the attack or though the middle.

Teenager Greig Mitchell introduced himself to Highland League football in the most effective of ways with a debut goal for Locos in their 4-0 win over Strathspey Thistle. Elsewhere, there was Man of the Match awards for his three midfield partners in the form of Richie Hart, Craig Shearer and John Chalmers.

Despite notching a hat-trick, Turriff United striker Gary Harris misses out on a place in the starting eleven with three Man of the Match winners in Gordon McCarroll, Cammy Keith and Martin Charlesworth pipping him. Another two - in Neil Gauld and Scott Lawrie - are on the bench. Cove Rangers' new signing Jamie McLauchlin earns SuperSub for his impact coming off the bench in his side's 2-2 draw with Huntly, scoring the goal which led his side back into the game having been 2-0 down.
Cammy Keith takes the Player of the Week award, while the top whistleblower was Craig Sim who scored 7 out of 10 in Brora's 5-1 win against Clach.
