"Steven prides himself on his work rate as a two-way player, aiming to excel at both offense and defense," Red Wolves coach Tim Hankinson said in a release. "I look to not only utilize his expertise in the attacking and middle thirds setting up scoring opportunities, but I also have expectations for Steven as a goal scorer himself."
Beattie joins goalkeeper Greg Hartley, forward Eamon Zayed and defender Nicholas Amponsah as Red Wolves signees.
