Stokes backed for Kilby revival
Former East Kilbride winger Chris Humphrey has urged Anthony Stokes to consider a career reboot at the K-Park.
Ahead of a switch to Livingston, the Lowland League side opened the door for shock swoop for the striker with boss Stevie Aitken stating:“If we could make a pitch and a deal could be done, we would do it.”
However, the former Celtic star is on the lookout for a new club after the 12-month contract at the Tony Macaroni Stadium was ripped up just three weeks into his deal.
Humphrey was plagued by injuries during spells at the Hibees and Bury before making the move to Lanarkshire non-league side and lifting the Lowland League title.
He reckons Kilby could be the perfect fit for the 32-year-old after the Livi pit stop.
The former Motherwell and Hibs star, who also played for Gretna 2008 and Kelty Hearts in tier five, said:“East Kilbride was a fantastic environment with some fantastic owners at the club as well.
“Paul and James [Kean] would do anything for you and they really looked after me when I was at the club.
“They are loyal and look after the players that they sign. I think Anthony would really enjoy it there.
“The quality of the Lowland League is getting better and better. People who have had injury problems, or coming to the end of their career, or need to bounce back, it would be a fantastic club and league for him.
“It’s very competitive and he’d be surprised by how good the standard is.”
