It has been confirmed this morning that Jamie McKernon is going out on loan to First Division side Ayr United.
The 19-year-old midfielder – who has made two first appearances for Saints – will go on loan to the Honest Men until January 2012.
Jamie is a product of the St Mirren youth system, going on to make his first team debut in the cauldron that is Celtic Park when he came on as a substitute in a SPL match on August 22nd 2010.
Despite his first team appearances Jamie still appeared regularly for the Under 19 side last season.
Midway through last season the Club moved quickly to secure the long term services of the youngster when he signed a contract extension that will see him ply his trade with the Club until at least the summer of 2013.
