It’s been one in, one out for Abbey Vale this week.

Michael Swan has signed for the Mary­field Park side af­ter leav­ing Up­per An­nan­dale, while Dy­lan Cairnie has moved to join Low­land League side Gretna 2008.

Vale co-man­ager Al­l­lan Clark said:“He’s (Swan) been at Up­pers for years but it be­came ap­par­ent that he wasn’t go­ing to sign for them this year so we’ve brought him in.

“With Dy­lan go­ing to Gretna it soft­ens the blow a bit. They both play the same po­si­tion but at the same time we’ve got two or three boys who can play that po­si­tion so it gives us com­pe­ti­tion.

“I’m meet­ing an­other player this week and if he signs I think that will be us. If some­thing comes along we’d take a look but we won’t be ac­tively look­ing.”

Vale have also made some ad­di­tions to the coach­ing staff as they con­tinue their prepa­ra­tions for the new South of Scot­land League sea­son.

Clark added:“Davy Kennedy isn’t signed as a player but he’s join­ing the coach­ing team. He’s go­ing to be tak­ing train­ing and he should be a good ad­di­tion.

“We’ve also brought in Adam An­der­son, who was the goalie coach at Niths­dale, and that should make a big dif­fer­ence to the goal­keep­ers.”
