STEVIE CRAWFORD has completed his first summer signing this afternoon in the shape of former Dundee United midfielder Ryan Dow.

The 27-year-old, who began his career at Tannadice, arrives at East End from League Two title winners Peterhead on a one-year contract.

The arrival of the midfielder comes after the club announced that Ryan Scully, Lewis Martin, Cammy Gill, Paul Allan and Thomas Bragg had all agreed contract extensions.

Dundee-born Dow signed a professional contract with United in 2007 and made his debut for the first team against Rangers in May 2010.

After signing a contract extension at Tannadice, he enjoyed a loan spell with Forfar Athletic before going on to play more than 100 times for the Arabs, including the 2-0 Scottish Cup final defeat to St Johnstone under Jackie McNamara in 2014.

After United's relegation to the Championship in 2016, Dow was released and joined Ross County, for whom he made 54 appearances before leaving for Peterhead in January on a permanent deal, having been with the Blue Toon since September.

He played 32 times for Jim McInally's side, scoring five times, as they clinched the League Two championship on the final day of the season.
