It’s great to be back
Chance to return was ‘no-brainer’ for midfielder
Queens’ new signings have spoken of the easy decisions to join the club.
Dom Thomas spent the latter part of last season on loan at the Doonhamers and is aiming for the play-offs.
He comes back to Palmerston with a bit more experience after playing for Kilmarnock in the top flight.
The 21-year-old said: “I got off to a great start at Rugby Park. I played the first 10 games and was doing well but, as often happens in football, there was a change of manager.
“As soon as I heard Queens were interested, it was a no-brainer for me.
“I loved it the last time when I had a good six months and I’m hoping to have an even better six months this time.
“It’s a great team and a great group of boys. There is no reason why we shouldn’t be in the play-offs.
“We will keep working hard in training and aim to pick up a good few points.
“It’s good to be back with the team again. It wasn’t the best start, losing 2-0 to St Mirren on Saturday, but we will dust ourselves down and come back fighting for the Morton game next week.”
Another January addition, Nikolay Todorov also made his debut for the club during the final 20 minutes in Paisley.
The Hearts loanee said: “It was a quick decision I had to make.
“I had heard good things about the boys and the gaffer and Queens are a club with ambitions so although it was a quick decision that I am happy to have made.”
In the lead up to the game, it was announced by the club that Callum Fordyce had extended his contract for another season.
He said: “The gaffer spoke to me a wee while ago. It’s the first time in my career I’ve been offered a new contract during the season and I’m delighted to get it over the line. It gives you security and you can enjoy your summer.
“I like the club – the gaffer and Dougie are brilliant and it’s probably the best group of boys I’ve been in so
It’s a free weekend for Queens as the Scottish Cup returns but the Doonhamers will be back next Saturday when they take on Morton at Palmerston.
