Jack Gurr signs for Aberdeen
Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass has called on his old Atlanta United contacts again after signing defender Jack Gurr.
Former Gateshead academy player Gurr moved to America as a teenager after winning a place at Georgia Gwinnett College. He went on to play with Georgia Revolution in the fourth-tier of the American football system, where he was spotted by Atlanta. Having played under Glass for United’s second string, he was promoted to the MLS side’s first team back in April, making one appearance against Chicago Fire before being released at the end of the US season.
But Glass reckons the full-back is ready for Scottish football. “Having worked with Jack for almost two years I know exactly the type of player we are getting, and he will be a good addition to the group,” said the Dons boss. “Jack is an attacking full-back who understands exactly how we want to play. I’m looking forward to seeing the contribution he can make to our campaign this season.”
Congratulations on the move Jack!
