Keith skipper set for Kynoch Park exit

And Turriff United have revived their interest in midfielder Andy MacAskill.

Defender Walker, coming up for 10 years at Kynoch Park and with 350 appearances behind him, is believed to have had a clause in his contract that he could move on if manager Darren Still left.

With Still gone, he has told the club he wants a move and Cove have been quoted transfer fees for him and Smith, who has rejected offers to sign on.

MacAskill has also been holding out putting pen to paper again and Turriff followed up previous interest by contacting the club last weekend.

“They were given a price, which they didn’t seem to agree with, and as far as I am aware we are waiting for them to come back with their valuation of the player,” said new boss Graham McBeath.

Smith and MacAskill are believed to have turned down re-signing offers under Still, and were aware of interest from other clubs. The lure of cashing in on the money swilling around the Highland League may be pushing them towards the exit, following previous skipper and top scorer Cammy Keith’s switch to Formartine last summer.

McBeath said he had been aware of the players’ positions before taking on the job. “Sandy Stables (chairman) was straight with me and the players have been honest with me about their intentions, and I don’t have a problem with that.
