Denny Johnstone signs for St. Johnstone!

Thursday 24th August

Tommy Wright has today bolstered his attacking options with the acquisition of 22-year-old former Scotland youth international Denny Johnstone on a season-long loan from Colchester United.

Johnstone came through the youth ranks at Celtic before making the move south of the border to sign for Birmingham City in 2014. While at St. Andrews he played for the first team on 3 occasions before being sent out on loan to Macclesfield Town, Cheltenham Town and Burton Albion. He also had a spell on loan at Greenock Morton in 2015/16 where he scored 14 goals in 35 matches.

Last season he signed for Colchester United where he made 35 appearances and scored 2 goals.
