Andrew Black Signs Contract Extension

Andy Black Agrees Contract Extension

Edinburgh City FC are delighted to announce that influential midfielder Andy Black has agreed an extension to the end of season 2019/20.

Having signed in Summer 2018, the former Dundee and Stirling Albion man has been one of the key performers in the heart of City’s midfield and this contract extension is reward for his excellent form to date.

Manager James McDonaugh commented “Andrew has had a high performing half season at the club to date and I am personally delighted that he has extended his contract. His work rate and ability in the middle of the pitch has been significant in our success thus far.”

Andy added “I am delighted to sign an extended deal, playing a part in the club’s ambitions and playing some of my best football has been fantastic. Long may it continue and hopefully a successful end to the season.”

Match Preview: Elgin City (H)

Tomorrow we entertain Elgin City at Ainslie Park as we look to maintain our lead at the top of League 2.

OPPONENTS: elgin city

Elgin visit Ainslie Park tomorrow on the back of a 4-2 win over basement club Albion Rovers. Their season has been a mixed bag so far, with as many wins as losses, however they are a strong team and have former Citizen Craig Beattie in their ranks. Shane Sutherland is as always the main goal threat for Gavin Price’s team, with the hit-man bagging nine goals so far this term.

TEAM NEWS

It’s a case of one (hopefully) in, one out tomorrow as having missed the midweek clash with Peterhead, Robbie McIntyre will be aiming to re-join the squad tomorrow, however Andy Black misses out following his red card in the same match. He joins captain Josh Walker, John Dunn, Keiran Stewart and Danny Handling on the sidelines. Brad Donaldson faces a late fitness test.

PREVIOUS MEETING

The sides met in the second game of the season up at Borough Briggs, where Elgin inflicted our first league defeat. In a tightly contested match, we had the best of the stats but Shane Sutherland’s strike on the hour mark proved the difference on the day.

Match Preview: Peterhead (H)

The big matches keep coming as we prepare for a top of the table clash with Peterhead tomorrow evening.

OPPONENTS: peterhead

The Blue Toon sit second in the table only two points behind us coming into the match and had a superb 5-0 win at Berwick Rangers in their last outing. Jim McInally has almost certainly the strongest squad in the division and in Derek Lyle and Rory McAllister, he has two of the most experienced and dangerous strikers at this level.

TEAM NEWS

Our injury list has yet again increased with Robbie McIntyre suffering a concussion in the weekend win over Annan. He joins captain Josh Walker, John Dunn, Brad Donaldson, Keiran Stewart, Danny Handling and Andy Black on the sidelines.  A number of players played with knocks on Saturday so once again the squad will be stretched tomorrow.

PREVIOUS MEETING

The sides met at Ainslie Park on 22 September at Balmoor, where two Blair Henderson’s goal was enough for victory.   Whoever wins tomorrow night will take top spot in  League 2 so the stakes are extremely high.
