Edinburgh City FC today announces the signing of former Scotland Under 21 International, Craig Thomson.
The 26 year-old midfielder was previously a youth player at Heart of Midlothian FC, where he was managed by Jim Jefferies, the Club’s current Sporting Director. More recently, he played for Kelty Hearts JFC in the East Region Super League.
The Club acknowledges Craig’s previous conviction in 2011 for offences he committed in 2010 and does not condone his behaviour in any way. However, the Club’s Board, management, playing staff and main sponsor collectively believe that Craig has completed his rehabilitation and we look forward to giving him the opportunity to return to playing in the SPFL.
The Club will be making no further comment.
