Ricky adds Esplin and Pearson to squad

13th November 2020

The Braves were delighted to announce the loan signings of two midfielders earlier this week.

Derek Esplin and Corey Pearson join from Pollok and Auchinleck Talbot respectively, and have signed season-long loan deals with the club.

Both featured in Tuesday night's clash against Gretna and remain in the squad for Saturday's match against the University of Stirling.

29-year-old Derek - known as Del - started the match, having been alerted to the club's interest by Ross McNeil, our currently-cropped striker.

The two played together at Rutherglen Glencairn at under-21 level and have kept in touch ever since.

Meanwhile, 22-year-old Corey knows assistant manager Richie Salveta since the two worked together at BSC Glasgow.

Both describe themselves as box-to-box midfielders, and will compete alongside John Guthrie, Gavin Lachlan, and David Sinclair for a starting berth in the centre of the park.
