Hearts snap up Scotland youngster Templeton

January 9, 2007

Hearts have completed the signing of Stenhousemuir striker David Templeton.

The Scotland youth international has cost Hearts £30,000, with the 18-year-old due to begin his career at Tynecastle as a member of the under-19 squad.

Templeton said: 'The move to full time football will help me develop my game and will also allow me to build myself up physically.'

Stenhousemuir manager Campbell Money, the former St Mirren goalkeeper, predicts a bright future for Templeton.

'He has good pace, two good feet and he scores goals,' said Money.

'As importantly he is a good type of boy, he will potentially grow into a very good striker.'
