Keeper Currie agrees terms
We are delighted to announce that goalkeeper Max Currie has agreed terms on a deal to join the club.
The 23-year-old is a free agent after leaving Stranraer, where he made a name for himself as one of the country’s most highly-regarded young prospects.
After coming through the youth ranks at Rangers and Motherwell, Max made the breakthrough at the Stair Park club in 2016 and soon made the number one shirt his own.
Director of Football Stuart Millar was pleased to secure the signature of a player he knows very well from his own time with The Blues.
“We’re thrilled to be able to welcome Max to the club, he’s a player who has always impressed the manager and I know first-hand the quality he has.
“We had stiff competition for his signature, so we’re delighted that he’s decided to join Airdrie.
“It’s unusual for a goalkeeper to have played so many games at such a young age, so credit must go to goalkeeping coach Eric Phillips and manager Stevie Farrell at Stranraer for their role in Max’s development.
“The goalkeeping position is one where we already have quality, so we’re delighted to be able to boost that with the addition of Max.”
Max added: “I’m delighted to be joining Airdrie, I’m really looking forward to working with the manager, the coaching staff and my new team-mates.
“Everyone is looking forward to football getting back up-and-running, and I’m hopeful it will be a successful season for the club.”
And Diamonds goalkeeping coach Jim Low said: “Max is a great young keeper - I’m sure fans will remember some top performances against Airdrie, including an outstanding last-minute save against us last season.
“He’s a player with a big future in the game, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
