TITLE WINNING MILNE RETURNS TO LINKS PARK
Montrose FC have agreed terms with Raith Rovers for the transfer of Lewis Milne in an 18 month deal that will see the midfielder return to Links Park until the summer of 2020.
The 24 year old first joined the Gable Endies from Angus neighbours Forfar Athletic in last year’s January transfer window and went on to play a vital role in an historic league run-in for Stewart Petrie’s side, scoring 11 goals from his 16 appearances.
Unsurprisingly, with this outstanding conversion rate, the chance of full time football came calling and Petrie reluctantly allowed the youngster to move to Stark’s Park in the summer.
Unable to establish himself in John McGlynn’s setup, having made only 5 starts this term, Petrie has moved quickly to lure Milne back to further strengthen his plans to establish the Angus Club as a League 1 side.
Petrie said, “We are delighted to have got this deal over the line. Lewis brings pace in forward areas, creativity in midfield and is a constant danger from his dead ball delivery.”
Milne will go straight into the squad for the Ladbrokes League 1 match at Dumbarton on Saturday.
