Revs Lose Dorman to Buddies

Scottish Premier League outfit St. Mirren have swooped in and signed midfielder Andy Dorman away from the New England Revolution.
Manager Gus MacPherson has told the club's website: "I'm glad to confirm that everything is now signed and sealed with Andy Dorman - he will be a St. Mirren player in a few days' time."

Dorman, 25, is a native of Chester, England, who moved to the United States in 2000 and attended Boston College. He was selected as the 58th overall pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft and had a breakout season in 2006 when he scored six times and added ten assists. Dorman saw his minutes diminish, however, under coach Steve Nicol in 2007, though he still managed a career-high seven goals for the league runners-up.

"Andy has agreed to an 18-month contract with the option of a further year at the end of that. All that needs to be concluded is international clearance - we have requested that and it is now in the hands of the MLS in the USA to push the clearance through."

MacPherson is excited to add a player of Dorman's caliber to his roster. "We feel he is the type of player who will definitely strengthen our squad. He is a box-to-box style midfielder who can score goals - and technically he is very good."

The club could certainly use some help, mired in 11th position in the 12-team league. Their goal differential of -19 is second-worst in the league. They are nine points clear of relegation, with that spot currently being held by Gretna.
