Callum Tapping Signs for Edinburgh City

We are delighted to announce that midfielder Callum Tapping has joined the Club from Stenhousemuir.

Callum began his career at Spurs being a part of their Premier League reserve squad in 2010. He then moved the Hearts, making 30 senior appearances during his time at the club, whilst making his Scotland under 19s and 21s debuts. Following his spell at Tynecastle Callum has gone on to have two spells with Brechin City, along with successful moves to Queen of the South, Forfar Athletic and most recently Stenhousemuir.

By joining City he is manager Gary Naysmith’s first permanent signing and the Gaffer had this to say to ECFC TV on Callum joining the Club:

“I am delighted to announce Callum Tapping as my first permanent signing since becoming manager of Edinburgh City. Having worked with Callum previously, I know exactly what we are getting. He is an all round midfield player who can do a bit of everything. He was one of the best central midfielders in League Two last season and I am delighted that he has decided that his future lies with Edinburgh City. He has good experience of playing at a higher level and at 27, his best years are still in front of him. “

ECFC TV grabbed a word with the new man, who was clearly delighted to have the deal over the line:

“Firstly a massive thanks to Stenhousemuir, a great club who will no doubt do well with ambitious people such as Jamie Swinney and Stephen swift leading the Club! I wish them all the best.

However I’m over the moon to sign with Edinburgh city, My decision was made after one conversation with the manager and James McDonaugh, they explained the direction the club wanted to go and I wanted to be part of it and most importantly the opportunity to work under the gaffer again alongside Grant Murray was a no brainer.

I’m looking forward to meeting the squad now and get going”

Brilliant to have you on board Callum!
