Andy Barrowman joins Livingston

Have your say

LIVINGSTON have signed striker Andy Barrowman on a short-term deal until January as manager Richie Burke adds yet more experience to his young squad.

Following the recruitment of Martin Scott, Simon Mensing and Kyle Wilkie during the summer, Barrowman’s arrival supplements the senior figures in the Almondvale dressing-room. The 28-year-old, formerly of Dunfermline, Inverness and Ross County amongst other clubs, will challenge for a starting place in Livingston’s attack alongside Marc McNulty, Kyle Lander, Danny Mullen and player/assistant manager Mark Burchill.

Burke declared himself delighted with his new capture. “At this late stage in the transfer window it’s rare to get a player of Andy’s calibre,” he said. “We’ve been needing another striker and Andy brings a lot of experience with him. I’m thrilled that he’s chosen to commit to the club.”

Barrowman has been training with Livingston this week and held contract talks but it took some time for both parties to reach an agreement.
