Elgin City striker Owen Loveland has completed a loan move to Lossiemouth
LOSSIEMOUTH have signed Elgin City striker Owen Loveland on loan for the rest of the season.
The 17-year-old goes straight into the Coasters squad for tomorrow's trip to Fraserburgh.
Loveland made a name for himself when he scored on his debut for Elgin's first team as a 16-year-old, netting with his first touch as a sub in a Scottish Cup tie at Stirling University.
He also scored Elgin's equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Edinburgh City in League 2 at the end of last season.
Lossie manager Joe Russell had been pursuing the teenager for some time as a solution to his team's lack of goals this term.
"It's good to get him on board," he said. "We've seen what he can do when he's played against our youths a few times so we know what he will bring to us.
"He's a bit of a poacher so hopefully he will manage to nick a goal or two for us and get us on our merry way.
"If he can get himself in amongst the goals with us it can help him put his name in the frame for when he goes back to Elgin.
"First and foremost we just want him to score goals for us."
Lossie had another Elgin player, attacker Kyle Willis on loan earlier in the season. The RAF serviceman scored on his debut but managed little football for the Coasters due to a work placement overseas.
The Coasters have managed just 19 goals in all competitions this season, with their joint top scorer Kris Duncan recently being released by the club after scoring four goals, three from the penalty spot.
