Seaborne happy with move

Partick Thistle new boy Dan Seaborne admits he is relishing the opportunity of plying his trade his Scotland after playing in all the leagues in England.

Seaborne joined the Scottish Premiership side earlier this week after leaving Coventry and made a successful debut in the 4-0 win over Ross County in midweek.

The 27-year-old spent six years at Exeter playing in the Conference before moving to Southampton in 2010 where he played in the Premier League.

Seaborne sees his switch to Firhill as a new challenge in his career and he admits he has been impressed by the set-up at the club.

"Coming to Scotland was something I quite fancied when the chance to join Partick came about," Seaborne told Sky Sports.

"I have done Conference in England right all the way to the Premier League so playing in Scotland is a new challenge for me."

Seaborne feels he has settled into his new surroundings quickly and admits a resounding win in his first game was the perfect start to life at Partick.

"It has been really good, I have settled quickly and obviously it is always nice to get off to a win in your first game," added Seaborne.

"It was a dream start to win 4-0 and the lads are a really nice bunch who have helped me settle in right away."

Seaborne, who has signed a two-year deal at Partick, admits everyone is focused on trying to secure a top six finish this season, but insists securing survival is the first aim.

"Obviously the ambition is to try and finish in the top six and that would be a dream scenario for the club, but first and foremost we need to stay in the league.

"Staying up was a really good feat last season and everyone is keen to improve on that this season and I can see no reason why we cannot do well."
