News in Brief

After securing the signatures of Stephen McKenna and Stephen Simmons over the past few days, Gus McPherson admits he`s got more `on his shopping list` and is working hard to get the players he wants.

Former Queens favourite, Rocco Quinn, has been snapped up by Ross County who have been on a `spending spree` lately.

He now joins Colin McMenamin who signed for the Dingwall club only recently. Rocco made 57 starts for us and netted 8 goals during his time at Palmerston.

There`s a lot of promising youngsters at Queen of the South and it`s only by playing them will they gain experience. Dan Carmichael was a revalation last season and it would be great to see the likes of Orsi, Black, McShane, McGowan and Degnan featuring regularly as they`ve all already tasted First Division football.

A lot of credit must go to Neil Scally for bringing all those youngsters on and it was very sad to see `Scal` depart.
