Adama joins teammates for trip to Dingwall

Saints head to Dingwall tomorrow to take on Ross County in one of the most important games of the campaign so far.

Only two points separate the teams going into this one and although it’s Saints who have the advantage, County have a game in hand and so the importance of tomorrow’s encounter is there for all to see.

Saints will travel north with new faces on the team bus since our last away match with Connor Smith and Adama Sidibeh both heading up the A9 and that journey will perhaps give the second-named player a chance to draw breath after a whirlwind 36 hours.

Adama put pen to paper on a Saints contract late yesterday afternoon, with Saints nipping in ahead of several other interested clubs in England for the Gambian striker who has netted 16 goals in all competitions for Northern Premier League side Warrington Rylands.

Prior to training today, Adama - who's international clearance has been received - spoke to the Saints Official Website to give his thoughts on the move to Scotland.

“I’m delighted to be here and really looking forward to playing for this great club” said the 25-year-old.

“My manager told me earlier this week that St Johnstone had made an enquiry, I was really interested and it’s happened!”

Rylands are chasing promotion in their league with Adama playing a no small part in that but he hasn’t hesitated to make the move to Saints.

He says: “They are a really good group and it’s a great club but they understand my situation and are very happy for me making this move to Scotland.”

Adama made a big impression in the Northern Premier League in just eight months and now he aims to do the same in the SPFL Premiership.

“I know it’s a big step up but I’m here to learn, to do my best, help the team and make the fans happy.  Yes, it’s a challenge but I am ready for it.”

Saints fans who have not yet bought tickets should note that tickets can be bought tomorrow from the away ticket kiosk at The Global Energy Stadium.  The supporters’ bus is fully booked.
