Crookston signs new contract

06 June 2024

The club are delighted to confirm the news that Gregor Crookston has signed a new contract at the club until the summer of 2026.


Gregor, who predominantly plays as a winger, joined the club in January 2018 from Forth Valley Academy, having previously started his footballing journey at Broxburn Athletic Colts.


He was a mainstay in David McNeil’s under-18’s side last season, but also received some good exposure to Lowland League football with Liam Fox’s Hearts B side.


Crookston is the latest Hearts academy graduate to put pen to paper on a new contract as the Wee Jambos shape up for another competitive season of Lowland League football.


Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, B-Team head coach Liam Fox said:


“Gregor has worked hard this season and despite an injury setback, he’s had a positive season. Firstly, he’s shown a good attitude to bounce back from that and while he’s featured more regularly for the 18s, he’s also had some exposure to the Lowland League, which will help him moving into the new season, which will be a big one for him.


“We have a lot of competition in those wide areas, so Gregor has to apply himself well in training to force his way into the side and then he has to perform on a consistent basis.”


Congratulations, Gregor!
