EDINBURGH CITY have further strengthened their squad with the signing of former Falkirk goalkeeper Gregor Amos.

Amos has played as a trialist for the Lowland League champions in their first four domestic games, conceding just two goals and helping City take full points in each as they quickly returned to the top of the table.

The keeper spent four years with the Bairns, during which time he had loan spells with Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale and fellow Lowland League outfit Selkirk before agreeing to sign on at Meadowbank.

With last season’s first choice Andrew Stobie still very much in the picture, City boss Gary Jardine is pleased to have two highly-rated custodians competing for a regular starting berth between the sticks, after fending off interest in Amos from elsewhere.

“I’m delighted Gregor has decided to join us as there were a number of other clubs interested in securing his signature,” Jardine said. “He’s shown in recent games that he is a very good shot-stopper with excellent distribution and his signing means that we now have two quality goalkeepers vying for the number one jersey.”

Amos is likely to be involved again as Jardine’s men take on Threave Rovers at Meadow Park this afternoon.
