Forsyth back with Binos

Stirling Albion can today confirm the signing of 30-year-old defender Ross Forsyth on a three-month loan deal from First Division Dumbarton.

Ross was a hugely popular figure during his six years at Forthbank after being snapped up by Allan Moore from St Johnstone in 2005. He joined Morton in the summer of 2011 before switching to Dumbarton at the beginning of 2012-13.

Operations Director Stuart Brown said: “I am absolutely delighted to be in a position to announce that our former player Ross Forsyth is joining us on an emergency loan from Dumbarton and will meet up with the squad tonight (Tuesday).

“Greig McDonald has been working on this deal for a number of weeks and agreed terms with Ian Murray at the weekend. Unfortunately, looking to the immediate future,  Ross has a pre-existing agreement with his parent club that he would be excused training next week to attend to an important personal matter and this means he is unavailable for our next scheduled game versus East Stirlingshire. Ross will, however, be available for selection for our Saturday fixture against Montrose.”

Manager Greig McDonald said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to follow up the recent signings of David Crawford, Jamie Bishop, Phil Johnston and Jordan White by bringing Ross Forsyth back to Forthbank. Ross is delighted to be re-joining us and he is determined to play a full part in turning around our fortunes.”
