Striker to train, another to stay?

Last updated : 22 January 2009 By Stuart Gillespie
Brewster was sacked by Caley Thistle earlier this week and, despite being 42 and not having played this season, has expressed a wish to begin playing again. A number of lower league clubs have shown interest, but Saints boss Gus MacPherson has invited the veteran hitman to train with the first team squad.

Fortunately, it looks like he won't be getting signed - although the reason given is that we already have enough strikers rather than Brewster being past it. His experience could prove useful for our other strikers in the next few weeks if he takes up the offer and he knows Dennis Wyness and Craig Dargo from his time as their boss. Brewster played alongside MacPherson at Dunfermline, which is probably why he's been invited along.

The news that Hamilton wants to sign a new deal is welcome. The striker has been linked with a number of clubs in the last few weeks and he is out of contract in the summer, but it seems he's more than willing to sign a new contract if one is offered.
