Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport - Will Hen­shaw

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son has con­tin­ued his re­struc­tur­ing of the Clyde squad by bring­ing in three new play­ers.

The club have se­cured the ser­vices of striker Sean Hig­gins from Cowdenbeath on a one year deal.

Dur­ing the 2014-15 sea­son, Sean played in 37 matches for Cowdenbeath across all com­pe­ti­tions, scor­ing seven goals.

For­mer Rangers cap­tain Barry said: “I’m look­ing for play­ers with a win­ning men­tal­ity, that’s very im­por­tant to me, and Sean cer­tainly fits that mould. He’s ob­vi­ously played at a higher level dur­ing his ca­reer, so there’s no doubt he also brings ex­pe­ri­ence as well as abil­ity.

“We had to work hard to get him, ahead of clubs in higher di­vi­sions, but we got there in the end and I’m de­lighted.”

Twenty-year-old mid­fielder Steven Bris­bane will join from will join from East Stir­ling this sum­mer.

Dur­ing the 2014-15 sea­son, Steven was a regular fea­ture for The Shire, play­ing in 30 matches and scor­ing against Clyde at Broad­wood in March.

Barry Fer­gu­son said: “Steven re­ally im­pressed me when he played against us and in other matches I watched. He has huge po­ten­tial and if he keeps work­ing hard he will have a bright fu­ture in the game.

“He can play any­where across the mid­field, which is also ideal given that we’ll be run­ning with a small­ish squad.”

And Barry made it eight sign­ings so far this sum­mer with goal­keeper John Gibson join­ing from Al­loa Ath­letic.

Barry added: “He’s a Glas­gow boy with the right men­tal­ity and we are de­lighted to sign an­other player with Cham­pi­onship ex­pe­ri­ence.”
