Montrose capture Crawford

Shot-stopper signs on at Links Park

David Crawford in action for Ayr UnitedMontrose have secured the services of one-time former Queen’s Park, Alloa and Ayr United goalkeeper David Crawford despite interest from a First Division side.

The 27-year-old, who was a free agent after a stint with Clyde last season, played recently for the Links Park men as a trialist and Montrose boss Stuart Garden moved swiftly to tie him to the club on a more permanent basis.

Garden said, “A First Division club wanted David as a back-up goalkeeper, however he wants to play more often and he has the chance to establish himself as a first choice here.”
