Hig­gin­botham seals move to Kil­marnock

The Herald - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

FOR­MER Partick This­tle for­ward Kal­lum Hig­gin­botham has clinched a two-year deal with Kil­marnock.

The 26-year-old spent two cam­paigns at Firhill, rack­ing up 35 ap­pear­ances for the club last sea­son, and is be­lieved to have had in­ter­est from Hiber­nian and Bur­ton Al­bion re­cently.

Hig­gin­botham said of his move to Rugby Park: “I am re­ally happy to have signed for Kil­lie to­day. Gary [Locke, Kil­marnock man­ager] has been re­lent­less in his ef­forts to sign me and I have taken this as a huge com­pli­ment. I am now keen to work hard and re­pay his faith by do­ing well for the club.”

The English­man kicked off his ca­reer at Rochdale and has been some­thing of a jour­ney­man, turn­ing out for Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley, Falkirk, Hud­der­s­field Town, Barns­ley, Carlisle United and Mother­well.

Locke added: “I am over the moon to have se­cured Kal­lum, he was one of my main tar­gets and we have chased him all sum­mer. He is a cre­ative front player – and a goal threat – and it’s great to se­cure him for the club.”
