Ryan Edmondson has given his take on his first two senior goals as the Leeds United prospect inspired a midweek Aberdeen win over Hamilton.

The forward was making his first senior start after completing a loan move from Leeds in the summer. He grabbed two goals and an assist as he helped Derek McInnes’ men on their way to a 4-2 victory.

Tommie Hoban and Lewis Ferguson grabbed the first two before Edmondson hit the net for the first time as a professional striker.

The Leeds United man’s first was simple enough, burying the ball from 12 yards after a nice Jonny Hayes assist. Edmondson then showed instinct for his second, latching onto a slip at the back and calmly lobbing Ryan Fulton.


It was a nice moment for the young striker as Aberdeen enter a big run of games, two of which come against Celtic, first in the league then a Scottish Cup semi-final. Edmondson has reacted to his double as he hopes to continue his form.

“It’s an incredible moment for me, my first senior goal,” said Edmondson (Red TV). “To help the boys with a win, grab a couple of goals, move above Hibs in the table. We have worked very hard this week.

“I’m happy with the goals as well. They weren’t bad, we have been working on it all week. I’ve grabbed two goals, it’s an incredible start for me and hopefully it can carry on.

“We have a big squad and we have a lot of quality. To score a couple goals and be in the gaffer’s thoughts is amazing.”
