Brechin close in on Burns as Lichties eye Jamieson

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - SPORT FOOTBALL -

Brechin City are clos­ing in on the sign­ing of Queen’s Park cap­tain Sean Burns.

Burns who started his ca­reer at St Mir­ren has been with the Spi­ders since 2011 and he has played in more than 250 games in ev­ery out­field po­si­tion dur­ing that time.

City man­ager Dar­ren Dods said: “Sean has the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing for St Mir­ren as a teenager and then reg­u­larly for Queen’s Park over re­cent sea­sons.

“We had looked at him be­fore. How­ever, his job away from foot­ball had made his sign­ing dif­fi­cult. That has changed re­cently so we are talk­ing again.”

● Ar­broath are hop­ing to sign Hamil­ton Ac­cies goal­keeper Dar­ren Jamieson, who was re­leased by the Premier­ship side last week­end.

Lichties man­ager Dick Camp­bell has freed shot­stop­pers David Hut­ton and Ricky Gomes and that has cleared the decks for the sign­ing of the 27-year-old who spent six years with Liv­ingston be­fore join­ing Ac­cies after a short spell at ju­nior side Bo’ness.
