Michael McArthur Signs for City - By Steven Mew

The Club is pleased to confirm the signing of highly-rated midfielder Michael McArthur, who joins on a 2-year contract from Midlands League side Downfield FC.

The 21 year-old progressed through Dundee United's academy and has most recently been with Downfield where he has spent the last two seasons.

Manager Andy Kirk commented, "Michael is another talented young player with a good pedigree, having trained full time with Dundee United. He's a good size and has a good understanding of the game.

"He is extremely versatile - he can play as a box to box midfielder and can even play at the back if required. We're excited to bring in another hungry and enthusiastic player to the club.

"With Cammie Ross and Iain Davidson departing, it left us with a couple of spaces which we need to try and fill. We've got one or two players that we are looking at to give us a bit more depth in the squad."

Brechin City FC would like to place on record our grateful thanks to Downfield FC for their professionalism throughout, with the club keen not to stand in the way of Michael who is looking to progress his career further.
