Montrose have swooped to complete the signing of two players from local junior side Montrose Roselea after the pair performed well in the side’s pre season build up.

Manager Paul Hegarty was delighted to announce the signing of centre half Jordan Reoch and striker Dale Reid on one year contracts after successfully negotiating a deal for the pair with the East Premier League side.

Locally based Jordan, 22, first joined Roselea having being released by Carnoustie Panmure.

Jordan is a former Dundee United and Arbroath FC Youth player, who scored the winning penalty in the DJ Laing Cup Final in 2009 as a 17 year old for his junior side.

He has previously attracted attention from Forfar Athletic and is relishing the chance to play senior football.

Reid, also 22, was previously on the books at Montrose and returns for a second spell at Links Park after firing home 21 goals for Roselea in 2013/14 followed by a further 25 last season.

During his first spell at Links Park, Dale who was a member of the Under 19 squad had a loan spell at Roselea before making the loan deal permanent in late 2012 after scoring 11 times for the Montrose under 19 side. A product of Forfar Boys and Kirriemuir Youth, Dale made his only Montrose appearance so far as a second half substitute in a 3 – 0 League Cup defeat to Dunfermline Athletic on 28th August 2012.

Roselea General Manager Roy Gill said, “I am delighted to see both Dale and Jordan get this opportunity. They have done well for and I wish them and Montrose FC all the very best for the coming season.”

Both players performed well in their debut against Forfar Athletic in Saturday’s Petrofac Cup tie at Station Park.

The club have also signed young defender Matty Allan from Dundee .

The 18-year-old arrives at Links Park on loan until the start of the January transfer window. Put straight into action, Matty performed well in his debut last Saturday against Forfar in the Petrofac Cup.

Dundee are looking for the central defender to play first-team games with Montrose while also turning out for the Dark Blues in the SPFL Development league.

Dundee Manager Paul Hartley said: “Matty has done well with the Development squad so it will be great for him get some experience.”
