DOUGIE IMRIE has stated his determination to make a striking impact for St Mirren in the new season.
The 28-year-old made the January move to the Buddies from Hamilton but failed to score in 14 appearances in the black and white stripes.
With Saints boss Danny Lennon bringing in two strikers over the summer, in the form of Sam Parkin and Lewis Guy, to augment last term's top scorer Stevie Thompson.
Imrie knows he is under pressure to deliver this time around.
After enjoying a run-out in the Paisley club's opening friendly of pre-season against Championship side Barnsley which ended in a 1-0 win to the Tykes, the Paisley ace admits he is determined to make his mark this campaign.
He said: "It is a big season for me and the priority has got to be to weigh-in with goals.
"Ideally I'd like to get as close as I can to double figures and while I don't want to put too much pressure on myself that is what I am after.
"I feel like I made a decent contribution to the side after my move last season but it was a huge frustration that I did not break my duck for St Mirren.
"I am determined this time round to get on the score sheet on a regular basis."
Despite losing last night's game, courtesy of a third-minute strike from Craig Davis, looked comfortable in spells.
Lennon will have been encouraged by the efforts of his new additions, with Lewis Guy being denied his debut goal for the club after it was cruelly flagged offside.
The Saints boss said: "The morale within the group is excellent and the new signings will certainly help our group over the season."
