Michael Returns To Shire

Clyde defender Michael Oliver has returned to the club until the end of season on loan, just weeks after his first loan spell was cut short by Bully Wee manager Barry Ferguson.

The temporary transfer means the central defender will stay with Shire until the end of the season.


The player’s original loan deal was due to run out at the end of the current transfer window but he returned to Clyde a number of weeks early and found himself back in their SPFL League 2 side after Ferguson had been impressed by his Lowland League displays.

However Clyde have now come to an agreement with Shire which will allow Michael to resume his loan spell and, as long as the paperwork is registered in time, he should be available for Sunday’s match against Spartans at Ochilview.

“We are delighted to have Michael back,” said Shire coach John Sludden. “He was a really positive addition to the team when he was with us first time round and he’s a good presence in the dressing room as well.”
