Berwick sign midfielder Taylor

Manager Stuart Malcolm has completed his third signing as ‘Gers boss, with midfielder Graham Taylor signing a one-year deal – with the option of a second.

Taylor follows Jamie Pyper and Alex Harris as new signings made by the new boss, with Ryan Finnie and Calum Smith having also both agreed terms since Malcolm joined the club.

Taylor, 23, started out in the Dundee United academy and his performances at development team level led to his inclusion in the first team squad for Scottish Challenge Cup matches during the 2016/17 season, making his debut against Dunfermline in November 2016.

During the early part of the 2017/18 season, Taylor appeared in a number of further cup fixtures, and was named man of the match against Linfield in the Challenge Cup in October 2017.

Taylor made four appearances in total for Dundee United before he was loaned out to Scottish League Two side Edinburgh City in January 2018 for the remainder of the season.

He played 14 times, scoring twice, and when his Dundee United contract wasn’t renewed, City swooped in to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis. He went on to play 46 times in all competitions for City in the 2018/19 season, forming a key part of the side that went on to finish third in the league.

For the last two seasons, Taylor has been at Cowdenbeath but, having only made ten appearances since signing on for the Central Park side, he has jumped at the chance at a fresh start down at Shielfield Park.

Speaking about the signing of Taylor, manager Stuart Malcolm said: “I’m really happy that Graham has joined us and, like Alex Harris, he has pace and creativity which will definitely help us at the attacking end of the pitch.

“The squad is coming together very nicely now and I can’t wait for next Friday night when the team will run out for the first time in front of fans for 16 months.”

Supporters hoping to attend the friendly fixture against Hearts next Friday night (June 25th) are advised to sign up to Fanbase now, with the platform set to be used for ticketing.

Hospitality places, priced at £30pp, are still available for the game and more can be found out about them via Craig Forsyth on
