McCusker & Girvan Sign

Tue, 25th May 2010 6:44pm

The club can confirm the signatures of two more players, with Marc McCusker (right) and Graham Girvan having agreed terms.

Marc is, of course, returning for a second spell at Broadwood. The striker was signed from Hearts on a two-year deal in 2008, but left last summer as part of the enforced cost-cutting exercise. For various reasons, he only appeared in one match during the year, but enjoyed a better time at Albion Rovers last season.

The 20-year-old netted 8 times in 18 starts for the Wee Rovers, earning recognition from their supporters in the form of a player of the year award.

Girvan has joined the Bully Wee from Ross County. The defender is most comfortable at right-back and was on the fringes of the Staggies' team during 2009-10, making six appearances. He was also part of the Cup Final squad earlier in the month, just missing out on a place on the bench.

Graham, 19, also captained the Dingwall side's under-19 team after progressing through their youth academy.

A very pleased Stuart Millar spoke to the official website after the deals were concluded:-

"Marc will be known to the Clyde fans and I'm delighted to have him on board. He's a gem of a lad and potentially a terrific striker.

"I know he has been at the club before but I think we should discard that. As soon as I was appointed, Marc became one of my top targets. I saw him on numerous occasions last season and I think he's the right type for us.

"With the greatest of respect, Marc was offered more money elsewhere but he made it clear that his preference was Clyde.

"Graham may not be someone that the Clyde supporters know but I know plenty about him through my Ross County connection. He's another terrific lad who is willing to learn.

"George Adams gave him a glowing report and said that he now needs more game time. He has taken a drop in finances but he is keen to come to a club that will look after him and give him the opportunity to develop his career.

"He's a footballing right-back who uses the ball very well and we've high hopes that he can adapt to SFL football."
