The 24 year old will add some strength to our midfield and 'Stepover' (as he was fairly affectionately known at Tannadice!) will grace the left side. Jim is a local lad, born in Bellshill and will no doubt be eager to please his new fans.
Jim 'Stepover' Paterson
Jim has made over 100 appearances in Tangerine but two leg breaks have delayed the progress of his career. He is not a prolific goal scorer with only 5 competitive goals to his name - typically one of them was a looping header over Andy Goram to snatch a last minute equaliser!
With Richie Foran and Brian Kerr already joining last seasons squad, we now have a first eleven which is beginning to look solid. However, Terry Butcher is saying in the press that this will be his final summer signing. Is he bluffing or are we entering the season with a squad which seems to have even less depth than last season? Either way, Motherwell fans will be anticipating seeing all the new players in action at Celtic Park on August 8th. Can we sneak it?
