Everyone at Stirling Albion would like to wish U19 striker Chris Paton all the very best as he heads to the United States to start a four-year scholarship with Northern Illinois University.
Chris joined the club in the summer of 2012 and has been a prolific scorer for the U19s this season, which led to a first-team debut as a substitute against Montrose in October.
SAFC U19 coach David Binnie said: “Chris is a terrific young player who is both technically gifted and extremely hard working. This is a fantastic opportunity for him to train and play on a full-time basis while studying for a university degree.
“My hope is that if, or when, Chris returns in four years’ time, the club will benefit massively from a player who has been involved in top-level training and competition.”
