Tony joins in time for cup clash

East Kilbride News - - MOTORS -

LLDLL East Kil­bride have com­pleted the sign­ing of for­mer Dum­bar­ton and Mor­ton mid­fielder Tony Wal­lace.

The 26-year-old, who spent last sea­son with East Fife, will go straight into the squad for Satur­day’s Scot­tish Cup clash with Al­bion Rovers.

Wal­lace had been train­ing with the club, but Kilby boss Billy Stark fi­nally got his man tied down on Mon­day.

He told the News: “Tony has been about the place for a few weeks and other clubs have been look­ing at him as well, so I’m de­lighted to get him.

“We chipped away at him and that’s him on board.

“He done his ACL (an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment) about seven or eight months ago, so he’s been work­ing his way back from that and that’s maybe been a fac­tor in him not get­ting an SPFL club.

“But he’s got SPFL pedi­gree, he’s a good age as well and he will give us some­thing dif­fer­ent.

“He can play in dif­fer­ent po­si­tions and will pro­vide a goal threat for us.”

Wal­lace also has ex­pe­ri­ence in the Low­land League. He played for cur­rent lead­ers BSC Glas­gow in the 2014/15 sea­son, win­ning the South Chal­lenge Cup with them.
