Saints sign William Sandford

The Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of William Sandford. The 20-year-old has signed on a one year contract. 

Born in Sweden with Scottish family, Sandford joins after leaving IFK Gothenburg. 

The deal is subject to international clearance. 

Describing the move, Sandford said: 

“I am delighted to be here, it has been a long time coming. I have been here since the first day of pre-season. I have worked hard and I am delighted to sign.

“I am half Scottish/half Swedish, so I have been to Scotland a lot. I like the club and I was invited for a trial. I worked hard and now I have signed.

“I have family here in Scotland, they stay in Pitlochry and that’s where I am staying at the moment.

“It is a great club with a lot of great players. The manager and coaches are great as well. It is a good place to be and hopefully I can develop as a player.

“I was at the Gothenburg academy. A good club in Sweden, a big club. I spent some time with the first team which was a good experience. I learned a lot, hopefully that can help me here as well.

“In December we won the U-19 league in Sweden, it was a great experience to be champions.

“I play as a defensive midfielder. I like to get on the ball, look for a pass and feed my teammates the ball. I am a hard-working midfielder.

“My aim this year is to develop as a player, help the team as much as I can and be ready whenever I am called upon. Hopefully it will be a good year.”
