Mackie Agrees Development Loan

Edinburgh City FC are delighted to announce that Hibernian defender Sean Mackie has agreed a six month development loan with City. The 18 year-old left-back joined Hibernian from Raith Rovers in February 2016 for an undisclosed fee and a series of outstanding performances for the Easter Road side’s Under 20s saw Gary Jardine move to take the talented youngster on loan.

Jardine said “Having watched Sean closely over the last six months I think we have managed to bring in someone whose strengths make him an ideal fit for us in the same way that we will, I’m sure, be a good fit for him. Having lost Dougie Gair and Gordon Donaldson, Sean will give us natural balance on the left hand side of the park and I’ve no doubt he will be a hit amongst the support in a similar way to Ryan Porteous and Aaron Dunsmore.”
