Welcome to Peterhead – Max Gillies

Jul 29, 2022

Peterhead have brought in Queen’s Park defender Max Gillies on loan with the 19-year-old expected to make his debut against Airdrie at Balmoor on Saturday afternoon.

Right back Gillies, the son of former St Mirren and Aberdeen player Ricky, played 12 times for the Spiders last season with Blue Toon manager Jim McInally saying: “Queen’s Park rate Max very highly and view Peterhead as the best place for him to continue his development. One other thing that helped clinch the move was Max’s desire to get further first team experience.”

“He told the Queen’s Park manager Owen Coyle that he would come here without hesitation. Owen has seen the benefits close up of the work we did with Grant Savoury last season and wants Max to benefit in the same way.”
