Defender Lee Hamilton is recovering well after being knocked unconscious during the ‘Gers 4-0 defeat to Gateshead on Tuesday evening.

The defender explained: “I’ve went up for a header, and I’ve caught an elbow and from that I was knocked out for a good few seconds.

“I tried to play on but it was getting a bit much. The doctor said I’m likely a little bit concussed, but I should be okay.”

Hamilton had missed the ‘Gers opening two matches of pre-season as he continued his recovery from a groin injury.

“That injury is always a strain in your head, but I can feel myself getting back to fitness and hopefully I’ll start playing games regularly now.

“Hopefully I’ll get earn the right wing-back role through the season. I think I have the right attributes for it.”

Lee also expanded on his time at the club since joining, as he continued: “I’m impressed with the club. I like John and his managerial style. The way he goes about things has been impressive.

“John’s style enticed me to come here from the start, so I’m looking forward to the season ahead.”

Lee finishes by discussing the ‘Gers first competitive match of the season, which comes this Tuesday evening against Albion Rovers in the Betfred Cup.

“That’ll be a tough game to start us off, but I think the boys have the right mindset, we’ve all got each other’s backs and I so I think we’ll be good to go.”
