Ewan McNeil Departs

Full back Ewan McNeil has left the club, having agreed terms with fellow League Two side Clyde.

The move, which Ewan admitted in an interview with Eric Tait was largely driven by the proximity of Broadwood Stadium to his home, comes after an impressive season with the ‘Gers.

The former Norwich City man will link up with Barry Ferguson’s side looking to better their play-off final defeat against Queen’s Park last season, the club announcing his addition alongside Matthew Flynn and Martin McNiff from Annan, Jordan Lowdon from Arbroath and Phil Johnston of Stirling Albion.

Prior to leaving, Ewan admitted that he was sad to be leaving Shielfield Park, declaring “I really enjoyed the season. There’s been a lot of travelling involved but I’ve played a lot of games and enjoyed my time here.

“I think since John Coughlin’s arrival as a team we’ve been doing well. We’ve turned it round since January. It’s a shame the season ended when it did. John brought in a system that provided a lot of stability. Playing with wing backs suited me down to a tee.

“I stay near Glasgow airport. Berwick have given me plenty of minutes but alongside work travelling is tough. It’s been enjoyable, there are a great bunch of club and the club has a great infrastructure to it.

“As a club everyone has pulled together, and if anything all I can do is wish the club the best.”

The club would like to wish Ewan the best of luck and Clyde and look forward to his return next season.
