Midfielder Gallagher signs
We are pleased to announce the signing of former Rangers and St Mirren youth Gavin Gallagher.
Gallagher, a box-to-box midfielder, has been training with the club in recent weeks, and the management team were delighted to get the 19-year-old signed up.
Gavin told airdriefc.com: “I like to get on the ball, and I like to think I can do the other side of the game pretty well.
“I’ve been in for three or four weeks now and I feel like part of the team. Obviously I’m just trying to get as many appearances as I can!
“As I’ve been in, the standards have been so high - they like to knock the ball about, play out from the back - a great style of football, and that’s just my kind of game.”
Manager Rhys McCabe added: “Gavin’s a very technical central midfielder, he’s elegant in the way that he plays. He’s got a wee nasty side to him too, in a good way!
“He’s one that I’ll be looking to develop - I see real potential in him, similar to the Justin Devenny situation.
“His attributes are fundamental for the way that we want to play, so he’ll be one that will be knocking on the door of the first team.”
Welcome to the Diamonds, Gavin!
