We are delighted to announce that defender Paul McLean has agreed a deal at Forthbank for 2019/20 after leaving Brechin City.

The 29-year-old becomes our third new recruit this summer, following the arrivals on Monday of left-back Jordan Lowdon from Elgin City and striker Lewis Hawke from Queen’s Park.

Edinburgh-based Paul has spent the last 10 years at Glebe Park, playing mainly as a right-back, and was with Norwich City and Falkirk as a youngster.

Binos boss Kevin Rutkiewicz said: “Paul is a leader and I want my team full of them. He has played a lot of football but is still only 29. We are delighted to get him on board.”
