LEWIS MILNE JOINS GABLE ENDIES
Mo Boss Stewart Petrie has moved quickly with the transfer window opening yesterday to make midfielder Lewis Milne from Angus neighbours Forfar Athletic his first addition to his table topping side.
The 23 year old joined Gary Bollan’s Loon’s from Cowdenbeath in 2016 and scored 8 goals in his 31 appearances last term. Following a short spell in Australia, Lewis returned to Scotland and Station Park in November but was unable to break into Jim Weir’s new setup.
Edinburgh born Milne began his career at Dunfermline Athletic, playing for the club's youth setup before moving to Cowdenbeath in 2008, where he went on to secure a professional deal two years later.
Lewis made his first team debut in May 2011 against Ross County and remained at Central Park for 8 years becoming an increasingly regular member of the first team squad before his move to Angus in 2016.
Petrie said, “I am delighted to get Lewis in so quick. He comes very highly rated and has arrived just at a time when we find ourselves short of central midfielders and he will go straight into today’s squad for our home tie against his old club Cowdenbeath.”
