Striker Don­ley back atTh­reave

The Galloway News - - LOWLAND LEAGUE -

An­drew Don­ley has re­turned to Th­reave Rovers.

The striker left the Meadow Park club for An­nan Ath­letic in 2012 and went on to have spells with Dal­beat­tie Star and St Cuth­bert Wan­der­ers.

How­ever, he left the Kirkcud­bright side ear­lier this month and has now re­turned to the South of Scot­land League cham­pi­ons, who have also signed for­mer Saints mid­fielder Stu­art Maxwell.

Boss Sam War­ren said: “An­drew trained with us on Mon­day

night and has signed on again.

“He’s a great ad­di­tion, we have a young striker in Robert Mid­dle­ton but An­drew has scored loads of goals and is one of the best strik­ers in the league.”

Don­ley, pic­tured left, fea­tured as a tri­al­ist for Th­reave on Satur­day and scored in their 2-1 de­feat at Stair Park.

It was the fifth de­feat in a row for the men from Cas­tle Dou­glas, com­ing on the back of a Haig Gor­don Cup loss to Edus­port Acad­emy.

War­ren said: “The last few re­sults have been dis­ap­point­ing. We’re playing some of the bet­ter teams and a few low­land league teams as well at the mo­ment.

“On Satur­day we never re­ally got out of the traps and al­lowed Stran­raer to get some mo­men­tum. It was only when we were 2-0 down that we started playing which is the frus­trat­ing thing.”

This week­end Th­reave will aim to get back to win­ning ways when they host in-form Abbey Vale who go into the game on the back of thump­ing Dum­fries YMCA 8-0.

War­ren added: “The games are not get­ting any eas­ier for us. The con­fi­dence is maybe a bit low at the mo­ment and needs a win to lift us up.

“Hope­fully we can get that on Satur­day and with An­drew in the squad he’s al­ways ca­pa­ble of get­ting a goal.”
