Rising star Aaron Healy has thanked his Arthurlie coaches after making a switch to the professional ranks with Queen’s Park.

The 19-year-old impressed for the development side under manager Graham Vance before moving up to the first team, where he was guided by Andy McFadyen and then current gaffer Craig Palmer.

Healy signed a four and a half year contract with Queen's Park at Lesser Hampden on January 2.

He will now ply his trade in the SPFL Championship but will look back on his time at Dunterlie Park with real fondness.

He said: “Graham was really supportive and gave me the freedom to do what I want. He had so much confidence in me and just gave me the belief that I didn’t have to worry about anything.

“Andy was great to work with but it was Craig who would message me privately and check up on me.

“I talked to Craig more but Andy was the one picking the team and things and gave me my chance, so I’m really grateful to him.”

Arthurlie’s match at Clydebank on Friday night was postponed but they are due to return to action this Saturday, with Pollok the visitors to Dunterlie for a 1.30pm kick-off.
