Debut strike for Ryan

Ryan Conroy was a happy young man after netting his first goal for Queens yesterday. Said the 23-year-old. "I couldn`t have asked for a better start by scoring on my debut. The deal was just tied up yesterday morning after a whirlwind trip back from Holland with Celtic and a few hours later I was pulling on the blue of Queen of the South. I know both Rocco Quinn and Craig Reid pretty well as they were both former Celtic players and the result was a good one for the club."

Kenny Brannigan`s close contacts with Celtic and Neil Lennon helped him clinch the contract which will see Ryan through to December at present.
