Templeman Joins East Fife

http://www.gmfc.net/ and http://www.eastfife.org/ have both confirmed the news that Chris Templeman has joined East Fife today.

Neither report makes mention of a transfer fee but Templeman's contract was up in the summer so any fee would be very small. I'd tend to think Morton would have been happy to get him off the wage bill as he didn't seem to be part of Jim McInally's plans this season.

Chris joined the club in December 2004 for a fee believed to be around £80,000 but which would rise to around £200,000 if Temeplman's wages, bonuses (over 3 1/2 years) and potential add ons were included.

Apart from a hat-trick at home to Forfar Athletic Templeman had a torrid first year at Morton. He rejoined Brechin on loan and failed to score a goal. He came back from Brechin with a new attitude and fought for his place in the team. He proved to be a success in season 2006/07 as he scored 14 goals on route to the Second division title - including two unforgettable goals in the Scottish Cup tie against Kilmarnock.
