Following the loan signing of Max Lowe from Derby County today, the Dons announced that defender Sam Roscoe has joined Alloa Athletic on a season-long loan.
The defender will still be available for Aberdeen Reserve fixtures.
Sam told the club website: “I heard about it a few days ago and I think it’s a great opportunity for me to go out there and prove to everyone I can play at that standard and I feel I’m ready to make that jump.
“As this is my last year in the Development Squad, it made me realise that’s the step I need to take to show the first team management at Aberdeen and others that I can play at that level week in week out.
“We’ve played a few games in recent seasons in the IRN-BRU Cup against the likes of Inverness CT and Raith Rovers who are both full time teams, but it’s getting that experience and challenge regularly for myself so I can keep on improving.
“It’s a good step for me and hopefully I can show everyone what I can do.”
