GERRY RETURNS - By Steven Mew

Following the signing of goalkeeper David Hutton, City have further strengthened their defensive options with the return of experienced central defender Gerry McLauchlan.

Gerry is of course no stranger to City supporters having played for the Club for five years between 2010-2015. In that time 'Ger' made 141 appearances for City and endeared himself to the supporters with his personality and no-nonsense style of play.

Since leaving City, the 31 year-old has represented Ayr United, Cowdenbeath, Queens Park and most recently Pollok. He brings considerable experience to a largely youthful back line, having amassed almost 300 appearances in total in the SPFL.

Speaking on the signing, Michael Paton commented, "We're happy that Gerry has agreed to come to Brechin - he'll be a familiar face to the fans. He has been in training with us over the last few weeks and he's kept himself in good condition. He's an experienced defender who will help these young players develop.

"He's an old-school centre half that will help us improve and he wants to help the Club get to where we want to be. We're hoping that bringing Gerry back will give the supporters a lift as well."
