Three and easy for Rovers

The Galloway News - - Sport -

Th­reave Rovers have made three more sign­ings – and an­other is on the way.

Grant Lear­mont, Phil Mid­dle­miss and Ryan Coates have all moved to Meadow Park, with boss Vin­nie Parker work­ing on a deal for Ryan Adamson.

Lear­mont and Adamson were both with He­ston Rovers last sea­son and Coates was with Lochar This­tle while Mid­dle­miss re­turns to Th­reave af­ter a seven-year spell away, part of which was spent in Aus­tralia.

Parker said:“Grant is a big sign­ing for us. He’s very ex­pe­ri­enced.

“He’s got over 300 ap­pear­ances in the South of Scot­land league.

“He was think­ing about re­tir­ing but I think he can still do a de­cent job for us and have brought him here. He’s a de­cent lad as well.

“Phil is very fast. He had a spell over in Aus­tralia and was with us at Dal­beat­tie a few years ago.

“You could see that he had ma­tured, his game as well.

“He was al­ways a good player but his end prod­uct was maybe lack­ing a bit but he has worked on that.

“Ryan Coates com­ing in gives us a bit of strength in depth.

“I think he’s still maybe a bit raw but he is in the right en­vi­ron­ment to work on that.

“I‘ve also spo­ken to Ryan Adamson and am hop­ing to get him signed up as well.

“He’ll give us some op­tions as he can play through the mid­dle or on the left.”

Th­reave have also been boosted by Adam Up­hill and Jack McMurdo sign­ing new deals along with Liam Pat­ter­son who is get­ting ready for his 15th sea­son.

The only thing left to be re­solved now is when the new cam­paign will start with ac­tion un­likely to be­gin un­til Oc­to­ber at the ear­li­est.

Parker added:“We had been hop­ing to get some non-con­tact stuff to­wards the end of the month but it doesn’t look like that will be hap­pen­ing now, es­pe­cially with the re­cent spike in cases the area.”
