Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Mur­ray Spooner

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn have added a po­tent striker and a new goal­keeper to their squad for the up­com­ing sea­son.

For­ward Gra­ham Boyd and shot­stop­per Jack Baker, 27, have penned deals with the Cel­sius Sta­dium out­fit for the 2017/18 cam­paign.

Boyd, who turns 25 next week, joins the Glens from fel­low Su­per First Di­vi­sion side Irvine Meadow af­ter net­ting nine goals in 20 ap­pear­ances.

Goal­keeper Baker ar­rives in Ruther­glen from Mary­hill.

Com­ment­ing on the dou­ble swoop, man­ager Wil­lie Har­vey said: “Gra­ham is some­one we’ve been af­ter for a long time. He was a prod­uct of the Tower Hearts un­der 21s so we’ve known about him since back then.

“He’s been at Kil­birnie and Ar­drossan and ev­ery time he’s moved I’ve just been two steps be­hind him. But a few of the guys in the team are friendly with him so we’ve man­aged to get the deal done. He’s about 6ft 2in but he’s not the type of player you lump the ball up to. He’s got good strength and is good with the ball at his feet.

“Jack is around 6ft 3in and is also some­one who has been on our radar. He’s orig­i­nally from Liver­pool and has played non-league English foot­ball.”
