Barclay Stays On

Goalkeeper Jamie Barclay has agreed to stay at the club until the end of the current Lowland League season.

The 27 year-old joined Shire in September following a short-term stay at Dumbarton and after serious injury had ruled out Darren Dolan for several months.


However, that original agreement only extended until the opening of the winter transfer window in January. This new deal takes away that short-term uncertainty and means Jamie will be able to see out the current season with Shire.

Jamie has been an ever-present since rejoining the club for a third time earlier in the year and has enjoyed a fine run of form since his first game, a 4-1 Lowland League win over Cumbernauld Colts at Ochilview in September.

“We are delighted with this news,” said a club spokesman. “Jamie has been a key member of the squad since his arrival and we are glad he will stay with us beyond the winter transfer window.”

Jamie had two previous spells with the club between 2008 and 2010 while on loan from Falkirk, during which time he won several Scotland under-21 caps. After leaving Falkirk he had spells at Berwick Rangers, Clyde, Airdrieonians and Stenhousemuir.
