Berwick Rangers are delighted to confirm the addition of 6ft 3′ stopper Devlin Mackay, who will join the club on development terms until the end of the season from Scottish Premier League side Kilmarnock.
The highly-rated twenty year-old ‘keeper has featured at numerous youth levels for Scotland, and has been a regular for Killie’s Scottish Youth Cup Development Team, who recently progressed to the semi-finals of the Scottish Youth Cup.
Mackay rose up through Kilmarnock’s youth system before completing a deal to join Derby County, then under the guidance of now Swansea City boss Paul Clement.
After that spell Devlin returned to the West coast of Scotland to rejoin Kilmarnock, signing a 3-year deal which will see him remain at Rugby Park until at least 2019.
With first-choice goalkeeper Kevin Walker currently sidelined with a shoulder injury sustained whilst warming up for our recent SPFL Ladbrokes League Two clash away to Arbroath, Devlin will provide both cover for the injured Walker and competition for Sean Brennan, who has been deputising in his absence.
The club would like to welcome Devlin to Shielfield Park, and look forward to seeing his development over the second half of the campaign.
