Retained List: Four Leave Shielfield

Berwick Rangers can confirm that Ross Drummond, Dwayne Coultress, Mark Walters and Billy Bald have all left Shielfield Park following the expiry of their contracts at midnight last night.

Meanwhile, striker Blair Henderson (Stirling Albion) and full-back Ewan McNeil (Clyde) have agreed moves to divisional rivals, with both having agreed deals elsewhere on the expiry of their contracts as revealed by the club over the past fortnight.

Elsewhere, loanees Jordan McGregor and Callum Crane have left the club following the expiry of their loan deals from Hibernian. Jordan has signed a full-time deal with Hamilton Academical following his Hibernian release, whilst Callum will be hoping to break into the Hibernian first-team in the upcoming season. Sandy Cunningham has also left the club, and is looking for a new team following his release from Stirling Albion.

Finn Graham has also been offered terms but has yet to accept a new deal. As an under 23, if Finn does opt to leave Shielfield, Berwick would be entitled to a compensation fee.

The ‘Gers currently boast 11 contracted players for the upcoming campaign, who are as follows:

  • Kevin Walker
  • Euan Bauld
  • Robert Wilson (Summer 2018)
  • Jonny Fairbairn (Summer 2018)
  • Brian Martin
  • Graeme Beveridge
  • Barry Hogg
  • Allan Walker
  • Steven Notman (Summer 2018)
  • Michael McKenna (Summer 2018)
  • Calum Helm
  • Darren Lavery (Summer 2018)

Manager John Coughlin hopes to add to those listed by securing several new signings in the next week, with Berwick’s boss confident that discussions with numerous targets are progressing well.

The club also expect to provide an update on our development team in the coming weeks.
