Kilmartin joins Lang
Forward Thomas Kilmartin has spoken of his joy at rejoining Cambuslang Rangers after choosing to leave Glencairn.
The hitman, who was the second-top goalscorer at New Southcroft last season with 11 goals, played with Cambuslang amateur teams Tradeteam Exel and County Thistle before joining the Lang.
The player, nicknamed Deco, was given Glencairn boss Willie Harvey’s player of the year award just a few weeks ago. He left the Lang in 2013 after Alan Wardlaw resigned as boss, and immediately signed for the Glens.
Thomas said:“I had spoken to a few teams as my contract was up at the end of the season.
“I had more or less decided to stay at Glencairn, as it was handy for me, and then I got word from Cambuslang Rangers that they were interested in me. Once I heard that, I decided I wanted to go back and play there.
“I get on well with Paul, and every time I’ve been in his company, I’ve really enjoyed it and he’s a decent guy.”
Some Glens fans will be surprised that a player who has proven himself in the Super League first division is willing to drop down two divisions.
But Thomas insisted:“I really don’t think there’s that much between teams in the super first and division two.
“There’s definitely a step up between the super first and the super premier.
“I really don’t think there’s that much difference between the three divisions - and what mattered for me was I felt I was coming home, to Cambuslang Rangers.”
The forward added:“I would like to thank Glencairn for everything they have done for me and all there fans made me feel welcome.”
