Peterhead to give Crosbie chance

Sep 19, 2020

Peterhead could give Dunfermline attacker Lewis Crosbie a route back into the game just four months after the teenager was released shortly after suffering a serious knee injury with Crosbie set to be involved in the double header against Fraserburgh and Formartine

The 19-year-old product of the Fife Elite Academy, who had a loan spell at Crossgates Primrose last season, was one of the 17 players let go by the East End Park club back in May. 

Crosbie sought out the Blue Toon’s legendary Fife based fitness coach Stuart Hogg to help him get back in shape and that move could lead to a deal with the Balmoor men. 

Peterhead boss Jim McInally explained: “Lewis needed help after being released and Stuart stepped in to see what he could do. Stuart has worked with him throughout the summer and when we returned to training, he encouraged Lewis to get back into a footballing environment.” 

“Lewis came in and enjoyed working with the players. We took him to Dens Park on Tuesday night when we played Dundee in a Friendly and put him on as a trialist late on. Getting back on the pitch was a big step for him psychologically.” 

“We have a couple of friendly games coming up and he will be involved in them. It could well be that a difficult situation for Lewis ends up in a win-win.”
