SEB Ross says it took him “less that five minutes” to accept the offer to sign for Cove Rangers.

Former Aberdeen reserve team captain Seb, 20, agreed a three year deal to become the manager’s third new signing of the close season.

Seb said: “I’m buzzing about the prospect of playing for Cove Rangers. I was sold on the club after less than five minutes of speaking to to the manager. He underlined his ambitions for what he wants to achieve with Cove and I was flattered that he felt I could be a part of that.”

“I’ve signed on for three years but I’m hoping I will be here for longer than that because Cove are a club a lot of people are going to want to be at over the next few years.”

Seb has no regrets about leaving Aberdeen, who he signed for straight from school and had impressed for at youth and reserve level.

“I see the move to Cove as a step up in my career. I loved my time at Aberdeen and appreciated all that they did for me. But I’m at the stage of my career where I need to play more first team football if I’m to continue improving as a player. I’m delighted Cove have offered me that opportunity, although I accept it’s something I’m going to have too earn.”

“I know I’ve joined a club that has a squad full of seasoned professionals who have far more experience of playing at SPFL level than I do. That was underlined when I trained with the lads for the first time on Thursday. It was one of the toughest sessions I’ve every been involved in – and competing against Fraser Fyvie in the session was a real eye opener.

“He showed me the sort of standards I will have to aim for if I’m to have any hope of forcing myself into the team. It’s a massive challenge but one I’m happy to take on because I’m determined to repay the manager and club for showing faith in me.”
