PETRIE LANDS TALENTED UNI YOUNGSTER ON LOAN
Montrose FC have signed Robbie McGale on loan from Lowland League outfit University of Stirling until the end of the season.
The highly rated 21 year old winger will go straight into the Gable Endies squad for tonight’s League 1 fixture at home to East Fife.
Manager Stewart Petrie has never shied away from giving a chance to emerging talent from lower leagues and indeed the last player to move from the University side to Links Park was Blair Lyons, who is now enjoying full time football with Partick Thistle.
Assistant Manager Ross Campbell said, “Our special relationship with the University of Stirling continues to develop in a very positive manner. I am delighted to welcome Robbie on board and would like to thank Chris Geddes for all his help and efforts in making the move happen.
“With our heavy schedule of fixtures in the next few weeks it is important we have depth and options throughout the squad and we are hoping to strengthen further before the loan transfer closes tomorrow night.”
It was also confirmed that the Club’s Sports Scientist, Stuart MacFarlane has been registered as a player on loan from Lowland League side Bo’ness United FC until the end of the season. The 31 year old defender is not unfamiliar to pulling on a royal blue strip having provided cover for the Betfred Cup on a short term deal in 2018
