Peterhead manager Jim McInally was happy with the displays of a number of trialists in their first pre-season friendly.
The Blue Toon lost 1-0 to Championship side Dundee at Dens Park on Tuesday night with McInally giving several potential new recruits the opportunity to impress.
English defender Kyle Bailey started at right-back. In the second half former Broughty Athletic attacker Derryn Kesson, ex-Celtic and BSC Glasgow defender Lewis Bell, former Dunfermline midfielder Lewis Crosbie, ex-Aberdeen midfielder Max Barry, English striker Hashim Bakar and former Aidrie goalie Reece Willison all featured.
Balmoor boss McInally said: “Kyle was very good at right-back, particularly when you consider that he hasn’t played since February.
“He’s got a great physique and is a good athlete and defensively he did well against Declan McDaid and he did well going forward and used the ball well.
“Derryn came on and was doing fine, unfortunately he went over his ankle so we took him off to protect him, but he did fine when he was on.
“Unfortunately he will be a wee doubt for the weekend (friendlies against Fraserburgh and Formartine United).
“Lewis Bell went on at centre-half, he’s been training with us for a wee while and he did fine. We had a goalkeeper, Reece, who played the second half in goal after Lenny Wilson played the first.
“All I can say for the goalies is that in the first half Lenny had one save to make and in the second I don’t think Reece had any, which probably says a lot about how we played.
“Lewis Crosbie came on as did Max Barry, but he felt his hamstring and had to come off. Hashim played up front with Isaac Layne later on and he did well, between they caused Dundee some problems.”
