‘Gers complete double swoop as Dunlop returns & Phillips joins


Michael Dunlop will begin a second spell with the club

Berwick Rangers have completed a double transfer swoop ahead of their match against Cowdenbeath at Central Park tomorrow, bringing in Arbroath men Michael Dunlop and Gary Phillips.

Dunlop will of course be familiar to ‘Gers fans, having spent time on loan with the club previously whilst with former club Forfar Athletic. The 23-year old left the Station Park side in the Summer to join Dick Campbell’s Arbroath, but has found regular gametime hard to come by.

With the ‘Gers struggling for consistency at the back in recent weeks it is hoped he’ll be able to have a similar impact on the ‘Gers team as he did last time he was amongst the ‘Gers ranks.

Elsewhere the club have also landed Gary Phillips, a reliable utility man who joined the Smokies from Albion Rovers in Summer 2016.

Most naturally a left-back, the 28 year-old is versatile enough to feature elsewhere in the defence or even in midfield, from where he scored the Wee Rovers’ 90th minute winning goal in a famous 1-0 Scottish Cup victory over Motherwell back in 2014.

The club would like to welcome the pair to Shielfield Park, and look forward to seeing them in action tomorrow where they will both be available for selection.
