David Crawford has agreed terms to remain at Broadwood until the end of the season. The ‘keeper, 26, signed a short-term deal in December and has already featured in five matches for Clyde.
Also staying on until May is Michael Oliver. The versatile 21-year-old joined the club in July and, as expected, has now extended his contract until the summer.
However, Jordan White is set to move on, with a move to Falkirk likely to be completed on Monday. Jim Duffy said, “We knew that there was a risk Jordan would attract interest from other clubs when we took him on on amateur terms. It looks like the Annan match will be his last for Clyde. We certainly wouldn’t deny him the chance to play full-time football and we’ll wish him well in the First Division.”
Jim also confirmed what most supporters were already aware of, that making additions to the first team squad during the transfer window was going to be very difficult:-
“Our financial situation is well documented and unless someone is very kind to us, it’s going to be difficult to bring players in. Unfortunately that also includes loan deals, the vast majority of the time the club will want a percentage of the player’s wages.
“We’ll never say never though, for example we were able to bring Jordan in, albeit for a short period of time.
“I’ll be speaking to Jason (Marr) in the coming days and we hope that we can agree something with him.”
Former Celtic centre-half Marr, also signed a short-term deal in December which is set to expire next week.
Jim concluded his update to the official website with the latest injury news:-
“Declan Gallagher could return next Saturday. He’s keen to get back into the action, but he needs to be given the all clear from his specialist before he can play. It’ll be good to get him back, he is an important player for us.
“Gavin Brown may be a bit further away, although there is an outside chance he might be able to feature at Montrose.”
