Di­a­mond Cammy joins Kilby

East Kilbride News - - THE BACK PAGE -

East Kil­bride se­cured their sec­ond Jan­uary sign­ing yes­ter­day when they snapped up young Air­drieo­ni­ans striker Cammy Rus­sell on loan un­til the end of the sea­son.

The 20-year-old, who has scored twice in 12 ap­pear­ances for the Di­a­monds this sea­son, fell out of favour with the Mon­k­lands club when Ian Mur­ray took the reins in Oc­to­ber.

But now he has joined Kilby to as­sist their bid for the Low­land League ti­tle and pro­mo­tion to League Two.

Kilby care­taker boss Stu­art Mal­colm said: “Cammy is a player we’ve been chas­ing since the sum­mer.

“Air­drie weren’t will­ing to let him go at that stage – when Ste­vie Find­lay was the man­ager – so it’s good to fi­nally get him.

“He’s com­ing here to get games, score goals and be creative. I hope he will prove valu­able to us for the run-in.

“With 11 games to go in the league, in­juries and sus­pen­sions will kick in so we’ve got to be pre­pared for the last bit of the sea­son, which will be a huge time for the club.”
