St Mirren have confirmed the emergency loan signing of Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal.
The Czech has signed on an initial seven day loan and will be in goals for at least today’s game against Hibs and the clash with Hibs on Wednesday night.
Buddies boss Goodwin was rushed into a deal for a keeper after BOTH shot stoppers Jak Alnwick and Dean Lyness tested positive for Covid-19.
This also left third choice Peter Urminsky self-isolating as a precaution in line with government guidelines. Tony Fitzpatrick thanked Hearts for their assistance in securing Zlamal.
He told saintmirren.com : “It been a testing 72 hours for our club. I would like to put on record my thanks to Hearts FC for working with us on this signing.
“The signing of Zlamal on loan gives us an experienced goalkeeper for the coming games. We are delighted that Zlamal has joined us on a short term loan deal.
“Our country is experiencing uncertain times with new restrictions being placed on communities across Scotland daily and in football we are no different.
“Our club has shown amazing resilience and agility in the last few days and we enter the Hibernian match with ambition of getting three points for our fans. I am proud of how the St Mirren family have again rallied together in these testing times. COYS.”
