Manager Allan Johnston’s side have started the season with one win and three defeats. A statement on the signing of Fitzpatrick from Norwich City states: “A new member of the squad but a familiar face this afternoon as Aidan Fitzpatrick joins on a one-year deal.

“The 20-year-old winger has been without a club after securing his release from Norwich City earlier this month. He started his career at Partick Thistle before earning a move to the Canaries, whilst there he spent the 2020/21 season on loan with us.”
