Switch has Lee buzzing
Stirling Albion’s Lee Hamilton is getting used to his current role in the centre of defence after previously playing at right-back.
The 22-year-old lined up alongside Ross McGeachie in the recent 2-1 win at Edinburgh City and kept his place for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Clyde.
He said:“I never used to enjoy playing centre-half – I preferred being on the wing so I could get higher up the park but it’s actually been all right.
“I’ll try my best to make that position my own if that’s where the gaffer wants me to play.”
Hamilton returned to Forthbank after a spell at Berwick Rangers, having previously played on loan with Bo’ness United, and has started 11 of the last 12 games, missing the Scottish Cup tie with Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale due to injury.
He said:“Berwick wasn’t really an option and initially I thought I was just coming in to train with Stirling. When they brought in the two full-backs I didn’t know what my chances would be but the gaffer gave me an opportunity and I think I’ve only missed one game through injury.
“The boys have got the right mentality to keep things going and we’ll be working hard over the next couple of weeks to prepare for the Peterhead game and I’m sure we’ll get the result we need.”
