New St Mirren signing Adam Hammill insists there is still plenty of time for the Buddies to turn their season around.

Hammill, who joined Saints earlier this week on an initial contract until January, acknowledges the poor start the Paisley club has made to the 2018/19 campaign but has stressed there is no need to panic.

The 30-year-old former Dunfermline winger, who could make his St Mirren debut against Aberdeen tomorrow, also said he has bedded in well as he aims to fire his new team up the league table.

He said: “I’ve settled in here straight away and managed to get 70 minutes under my belt in a game on Tuesday.

"It’s not been the best of starts for the club but, hopefully, I can help lead them up the table. Results haven’t gone the way the gaffer would have liked but it is still early days.”

Hammill already knew Saints midfielder Ryan Flynn, having won the 2005/06 FA Youth Cup with him during their time with Liverpool.

And the Scouser is now set to go up against Aberdeen full-back Shay Logan, who was in Manchester City’s youth team at that time.

Hammill said he is raring to go as he looks forward to a new chapter in his career.

He added: “One thing that is always key to me is being valued – and that doesn’t always mean the club that’s offering the most money.

"It is all about where you see yourself fitting in and, as soon as I spoke to the manager, I was impressed by his ambition.

"I knew a few of the players here and I was at Liverpool with Ryan Flynn, so there is good pedigree. I’m excited to get started.”
