Formartine United manager Paul Lawson is pleased to have recruited goalkeeper Balint Demus.

The Cove Rangers custodian will join the North Lodge Park side on a season-long loan, subject to SFA approval.

Demus, 19, will compete with Ewen Macdonald for a place between the posts at North Lodge Park.

Demus played for Formartine as a trialist in a 2-0 friendly win over Bridge of Don Thistle on Wednesday night.

Boss Lawson said: “It’s good to get Balint in, he’s trained with us and played as a trialist in a friendly.

“We’ve actively been looking to get a goalkeeper in. Losing Kevin Main was a blow to us.

“Ewen Macdonald has done really well and has been very patient in the last couple of years.

“But we needed somebody to come in and push him. I know Cove have high hopes for Balint and he’s shown us already in training what he’s capable of.

“I’m sure he’ll push Ewen all the way for a place in the team.”

Assessing trialists in pre-season

Lawson, who is still open to adding to his squad, also played former Aberdeen youngster Andy Paterson as a trialist against Bridge of Don.

He added: “It was good to get the game the other night and it’s good to have a look at players.

“The guys have worked really hard so far in pre-season, Andy looked good and fitted in well.

“You can train all you want, but it’s good to see players in a game and we’ll see how things progress.

“I think if there’s a good player available that we think can improve us we’ll go after him.”
