Spartans have added to their squad for the coming Lowland League season by signing former Berwick Rangers player Scott Maxwell.
The left-sided midfielder was released by the Shielfield club – Spartans’ William Hill Scottish Cup fifth-round opponents last season – and Dougie Samuel has moved quickly to capture the ex-East Stirlingshire wide man as they look to reclaim the title from rivals Edinburgh City.
Samuel told the club’s website that Maxwell is a player he’s been chasing for a while.
“Scott is player we have admired and wanted to bring to the club for some time,” he said. “On the back of signing Eddie Malone and Dean Horribine earlier this summer, Scott is another player who brings senior experience and quality to our squad for next season.”
Maxwell said: ”I’m delighted to sign with Spartans. It’s a great club with plenty of ambition. I can’t wait to get started.”
