Ayr United have moved to sign Joe Chalmers – and manager Mark Kerr says he could be a ‘big asset.’

The left-back has signed a two-year deal with the Honest Men as they look forward to another Championship season. They have already brought in the likes of Tom Walsh and Patrick Reading and the former Celtic man is next.

Chalmers started his career at Celtic Park, only managing to crack the senior side on occasion, also spending a spell at Falkirk on loan from the Hoops. He left Celtic for Motherwell, where he would make 31 appearances.

After his Fir Park spell Chalmers would move to the Highlands. Making 91 appearances for Inverness, he moved to Ross County last summer. His spell in Dingwall has come to an end after 14 Premiership appearances.

Now he’s an Ayrshire man, Kerr reckoning Chalmers brings many different positives to the Ayr United table.

“I am delighted to get this deal over the line as Joe is someone I have tried to get on more than one occasion,” said Kerr. “He is a good age and has great experience in the Championship, as well as playing in the Premiership.

“Joe has a great left foot and will be a big asset from set pieces. He is calm and composed on the ball and also adds good height to the team.”
