Striker Junior Morias is relishing the 'new challenge' at St Mirren after being convinced to sign for the club by fellow ex-Cobbler Sam Foley.
Foley, released by Northampton at the end of last season, signed a two-year contract with the Scottish Premiership club earlier in the month.
He's now been joined by a team-mate from last season with Morias putting pen to paper on a two-year deal after leaving the Cobblers for an undisclosed fee on Thursday.
“It is good to finally get it sorted – it is good to feel wanted by a manager and a club," said the 24-year-old, who scored six goals last season. "I am grateful and thankful that this got sorted.
“I only found out about the interest a few days ago. My agent called me and told me of the interest from St Mirren and I didn’t hesitate – I just said to him let’s do it. I knew this is what I wanted to do.
“It is all positive and I am really excited to get started. It's a new challenge. I love challenges and I'm ready to put in the work.
"I spoke to Foles (Sam Foley) and I asked him about everything I needed to know. He said there were a great bunch of lads here, good staff and it was all positive.
"I had a good conversation with the manager and I know what he wants to achieve and it matches what I want to do."
