GABLE ENDIES ADD FIREPOWER TO PROMOTION PUSH
Montrose FC have signed in demand striker Martin Rennie from Junior side Lochgelly Albert until the summer of 2019 as Manager Stewart Petrie looks to add more goals to his promotion run in.
The 23 year old, who joined the McBookie.com East Region outfit in 2016 from Kirkcaldy YM Amateurs has scored 17 goals this season playing both as a front man and in behind a front two, bringing him to the attention of a number of professional clubs.
The Links Park side currently sit top of Ladbrokes League 2 with title chasing Peterhead breathing down their necks, only one point behind but with 2 games in hand.
Petrie said, “Our priority, coming into the transfer window was to increase our options up front and I am delighted Martin has chosen to join us. Our form this season has been excellent and the squad we have is very strong, but we are always looking to improve.
“Having trained with us recently, we were able to get a good look at Martin and we have been very impressed. He comes highly rated, full of confidence, carrying a real threat from set pieces and a good goal scoring record.”
Rennie will go straight into the squad for the Gable Endies home game against Clyde tomorrow.
