Dunfermline Athletic

Manager welcomes Ewan Otoo

Sunday, 12th Feb 2023

12/02/23: You may have seen this somewhere - A great deal with O2

James McPake has used his knowledge of up and coming players and his friendship with his former Dundee colleague Darren O‘Dea to bring in 20 year old Ewan Otoo on loan to the club until the end of the season.

He told the website:-

“I have known him since he was seventeen. I am very friendly with Darren bring who is the Celtic B manager. Ewan was the Celtic B captain and I have tried to get him for the past month. We eventually got it over the line and again a thank you to the club for that.

“He showed his adaptability against Airdrie. He came on in midfield, he then went left of a back three. He is a good player, a great kid, and he is not somebody that I don’t know. I didn’t know him personally but he played against my youth team and I had watched him plenty. Obviously with the connection to Darren I had spoken to Darren and watched most of Celtic B’s games.”

Ewan’s Dunfermline debut came in 32nd minute of the match against Airdrieonians and after just one day training with his new team mates. James continued:-

“We are delighted to get him in and I wasn’t hoping to throw him on to a game like that but when he went on it didn’t phase him. When he gave the ball away but he was trying the right thing, I don’t mind that.

“I will never criticise the players for trying to do the right thing but if you don’t run about and you don’t fight or when you are on your knees you don’t try and get back up then of course I am going to criticise them because it is not something that me, Dave and the rest of the coaching staff will accept.”
