Calum Antell

Calum joined the ‘Gers on a two-year deal in mid-May 2022. The goalkeeper arrived from SPFL Championship side Arbroath, where he helped them finish runners-up going unbeaten in his six appearances over the course of the campaign.

Calum has a wealth of experience having racked up some 187 appearances across various divisions within the SPFL. In addition to his time with Arbroath, he has also spent time in the senior system with East Stirlingshire, East Fife, Queen of the South, Brechin City and Edinburgh City.

The goalkeeper originally moved to Scotland to join Hibernian on a full-time basis, having spent time in the youth systems of both Cardiff City and Swindon Town. Between 2014 and 2016, he also  enjoyed a 70 game spell with Nairn County before returning to the senior ranks.

Prior to joining the Smokies for their impressive 21/22 Championship campaign, he was first-choice at Edinburgh City for around five years, where he finished runner-up in League Two four times.

After speaking to manager Stuart Malcolm, the former Wales under 19 international rejected offers from elsewhere within the senior leagues as well as at rival Lowland League clubs, with the project at Berwick and prospect of making the #1 jersey his own clearly proving attractive as he enters the prime of his career.
