Finn Ecrepont and Gabe Skeoch Join Albion Rovers

Finn Ecrepont and Gabe Skeoch join on loan from Ayr United for Season 20/21.

 

The highly-rated youngsters will bolster Brian Reid’s squad as we head into pre-season.

 

Finn joins after being part of the Ayr United first team, making his debut in the Championship at 17-years-old. The left-back has 21 youth level Scotland appearances across a range of age groups – helping the U16s beat England with a winning goal at Forthbank.

 

Gabe will join after playing for Irvine Vics and the Ayr United Reserves squad, who finished second in the Reserve League 2. The versatile wide player can play across the park.

 

“What stood out for me was that they were both so keen to come and do well for our club.” manager Brian Reid said.

 

He added: “They fit the profile of the type of players we want here, hungry to do well and improve as footballers.

 

“Finn was actually on the phone to me straight away telling me how keen he was to come and play for the club and how much he valued the opportunity which for an 18-year-old impressed me.

 

“Both are highly rated by Mark (Kerr) and everyone at Ayr and it’s a club I have a really good relationship with.”

 

Brian Reid commented on the position of the squad: “I am really happy with the players we have brought in so far. We still have other targets and I am looking for probably another 2-3 players.” 

 

He added: “I have been really impressed with the quality of Reserves and I will certainly be using the talent we already have at the club.”

 

Commenting on the move Finn said: “I want to be playing every week and this gives me a chance to do this. Brian was really good to talk to and it was an easy decision.  ”

 

He added: “I have played against some of the worlds best young players through my Scotland appearances and I am hoping to really kick on. I am a really positive player – I want to run myself into the ground for the team. I am not shy of a tackle either!” 

 

Gabe said: “Both of us are buzzing, I can remember going to Ayr matches when I was younger when Brian was in charge. When I spoke to him he was really ambitious and keen to have to us on board.”

 

He added: “I have been playing in the juniors in Ayrshire which was really tough but rewarding and it made into a better player. I am not afraid to take players on and get to the byline. I can’t wait to get started.”

  1. Best of luck to both had the pleasure to work with Gabe, but also saw Finn playing a few times. Gabe was a good listener & I’m sure he will do well!
