Cowdenbeath midfielder Liam Callaghan, who been attracting the interest of full time sides on both sides of the Border has agreed a new two year deal with the Second Division leaders.
Callaghan’s displays for the Blue Brazil’s under-19 and reserve side saw him invited in for trials with Birmingham City and Celtic, where his uncle Tommy Callaghan used to play.
Manager Colin Cameron said, “Liam is just one of a batch of promising youngsters coming through the ranks here and no doubt will be hoping to make his first team debut in the near future.”
If Callaghan goes on to play for Cameron’s first team, he will become the third generation of the his family to play for the Central Park side, following in the footsteps of his father, Willie junior, and his grandfather Willie senior.
Cameron has also tied goalkeeper Thomas Flynn to the club for next season after the former Hibs youngster grabbed his opportunity to put together a run of 26 consecutive appearances.
Cameron said, “Thomas had to be patient before claiming the number one spot from Yossi Bejaoui but he has done that now. He has had 14 clean sheets during that run so I am delighted he has signed on again.”
Kenny Adamson, Thomas O'Brien and Mark Ramsay have all recently agreed new deals with Cameron adding, “Negotiations are on-going with other players and we hope to make further announcements in the coming weeks.”
