Former Hibs, Hearts and Manchester United winger makes Lowland League move to Bo'ness
The former Hearts trainee moves from Lowland League side Gala Fairydean Rovers after agreeing a pre-contract with Max Christie’s side earlier in the year and will kick off the season against Rangers later this month.
Galbraith began his football career with the Tynecastle club before moving south to Old Trafford for a £50,000 fee on his 16th birthday, and in his first season was part of United’s 2007 FA Youth Cup final side, defeated by a Liverpool team inspired by future St Mirren and Falkirk midfielder Ryan Flynn, in a penalty shoot-out.
After injuries curtailed his first-team appearances with the Reds he returned north to Easter Road and played more than 50 games at Hibs and memorably scored his only goal with a 90th minute winner at Celtic Park in 2010.
Spells at Limerick and through the English lower divisions with Gillingham and York City followed and Galbraith completed the capital city set with a spell at Edinburgh City before joining his hometown team in Galashiels in 2019.
The 30-year-old has been on the BU radar for months with a pre-contract agreement on the table since May according to our sister title, the Bo’ness Journal.
United have also confirmed that Kelty Hearts pair Keir Macauley and Matty Flynn are bound for Newtown Park for the forthcoming campaign.
