The club is excited to confirm the addition of 19 year-old goalkeeper Andy McNeil from Airdrieonians FC on a one-year contract.
Andy is a former SFA Performance School graduate and has enjoyed a spell at the well-respected Falkirk FC Academy. Elsewhere, the youngster also spent time with Livingston and Motherwell before going full-time at Airdrie.
The highly-rated stopper, whose development will continue to be assisted through the help of former ‘Gers boss Paul Smith and John McGlynn of Raith Rovers during the week, will compete with Dougie Horne for the #1 jersey in the new campaign.
When sharing his thoughts on his latest addition, ‘Gers boss Ian Little said:
“We were made aware of Andy’s availability and we were delighted to offer him the opportunity to continue his development and fight for first-team football at the club.
“This signing leaves us in a great position in Andy’s area of the pitch, with two great goalkeepers now on board and ready to compete.”
The club are also pleased to confirm that player sponsorships are now available to purchase via our own online store, with our latest addition to the playing squad one of the names available to sponsor immediately.
Club officials are currently in the process of contacting last season’s kit sponsors to offer them first option on any players they backed during 2019/20, and so further players may also become available to sponsor in the coming weeks.
As usual, all kit sponsors can expect to receive exposure and promotion across the ‘Gers digital and traditional platforms, including the club website, social media platforms and match programme.
As the club continues to explore how is can offer maximum value for those who are generous enough to support through sponsorship, this year’s sponsors can expect more extensive exposure than the club has ever delivered before, with revamped player profiles and matchday social media graphics amongst the improvements on the cards.
Furthermore, all sponsors will have something to remember their sponsorship by in the form of a signed replica shirt.

McNeil’s arrival at Shielfield Park also offers the club a perfect opportunity to launch and advertise the availability of the ‘Gers new Kappa goalkeeper tops for the 20/21 campaign.
Available to pre-order now from our Border Embroideries store, and available in youth sizes aged 6-16 and adults sizes Small to 4XL, replica ‘keeper tops will be priced from £34.50.
