Dorman Signing With Scottish Club

Looks like the Andy Dorman era (if you can even call it that) in New England is finally over. Dorman is off to Scotland to bottom-dwelling St Mirren once his contract runs out to begin the new year next week. According to the club’s official site, he will begin an 18-month contract with the club.

St Mirren gaffer Gus MacPherson had this to say about the signing of Dorman:

“Andy has agreed to an 18 month contract with the option of a further year at the end of that.

“All that needs to be concluded is international clearance – we have requested that and it is now in the hands of the MLS (Major League Soccer) in the USA to push the clearance through.

“His contract with the New England Revolution expires over December 31st and January 1st – after that his contract with us will kick-in.”

From what I hear out of New England, Dorman was given a pretty crappy offer to stay so he decided once the season was over he would be on his way out. Falling out of favor with the coaches late in the season didn’t help Dorman’s status either.

I hate to see a guy with a lot of promise like Dorman go but we knew this would be the case with him back in the summer really. Too bad he is playing for a terrible club like St. Mirren. Maybe he can help them turn things around or something. I guess that is the notion for him signing there.

    Congrat's to Andy, I hope a lot more players leave and make MLS rethink they poor business model. MLS will always be a feeder league for the major leagues (and not so major) because they still don't get it.
