Following the conclusion of an eventful 2022/23 season, the Club are now in a position to provide an initial squad update as we look ahead to the 2023/24 campaign.
As it stands, the Club currently have 11 players contracted for next season:
There are still discussions ongoing with a number of players, including potential new arrivals and the club will inform supporters via the website and social media channels as and when these are confirmed and ratified by the SFA.
Definitely moving on from the club following the expiry of their contracts are Kieran Inglis, Jamie Bain, Dean Easton, Calum Ferguson, Aubrel Koutsimouka and Ryan McInnes.
Kieran Inglis has intimated to Manager Andy Kirk that he has decided to move onto pastures new after 4 seasons at Glebe Park which had made him the current longest serving player. 'Kinglis' joined City aged 18 following his release from Dundee United and went on to be a regular for City in a variety of positions, making 127 appearances and scoring 31 goals.
Since joining in the summer of 2021, Jamie Bain played a key role for us over the last two seasons and captained City to the Highland League title. He wore his heart on his sleeve whilst representing the club which endeared him to the City faithful.
Brechin-based Dean Easton spent much of the season as backup to number one Lenny Wilson, however he featured in the victories over Rothes & Lossiemouth in the Highland League Cup - the latter resulting in a clean sheet.
Both Calum Ferguson and Aubrel Koutsimouka joined the club on short term deals towards the end of the season but owing to the fine form of their teammates, appearances were limited.
Ryan McInnes made 4 appearances off the bench for City and the young striker spent much of the season out on loan at Broughty Athletic and most recently, Carnoustie Panmure. The young striker will now look to further develop his career elsewhere with regular game time.
We thank each and every one of these players for their effort and commitment whilst representing the club and wish them the very best for the future.
