New Signing: James Keatings

James Keatings 

The club are delighted to announce the signing of James Keatings from Dundee United for an undisclosed fee. 

Keatings returns to us after scoring 18 goals in 45 appearances in his first spell with the club. The 26 year old forward was a key part of the promotion winning squad in 2013-14 and everyone at the club is delighted to have him back.

After leaving the club James signed with Heart of Midlothian as they went on to win the Scottish Championship before moving to capital rivals Hibernian where he played an integral role in their Scottish Cup victory in 2016.

Manager Martin Canning said: ”We know what we’re getting with Keatsy – he’s got great quality on the ball and he’s a fantastic finisher. He’s had a frustrating time with injury but he’s back fit and raring to go.”

Canning, who himself marks ten years as an Accie tomorrow, added: ”He knows how the club operates, was part of a successful team here last time and he’s hungry to do the same again this time around.”
