Danny Jardine Signs

Edinburgh City FC Announce Signing of Danny Jardine

The new signings continue at Ainslie Park with midfielder Danny Jardine the latest new recruit! Twenty two year old Danny began his career with Middlesborough, before joining St Johnstone. Without making the break through to the first team he moved to Stirling Albion initially on loan before making the permanent switch to Forthbank Stadium in the summer of 2018.

A regular in the Binos’ starting eleven and comfortable in a number of roles, Danny has put in some impressive performances against City and his signing is another major squad boost. An Edinburgh native, Danny is clearly relishing the move to City:

“I’m delighted to sign for Edinburgh City; they are a really ambitious club who an attractive style of football with a great squad and manager. I’m looking forward to the season when it kicks off.”

Manager James McDonaugh continues to fine tune his squad ahead of the new season and had this to say on the news of Danny’s signing:

“I’ve known Danny since before he came in at Hibs. I’m delighted to have signed him for a second time, albeit in 12 years on! He is a versatile, attacking player who I’m sure will flourish with playing alongside the players we already have at the Club.”

The squad is really taking shape now and we can’t wait to see Danny in City colours come October!


Kelby Mason Signs

Edinburgh City Complete Signing of Kelby Mason

The Club is delighted that goalkeeper Kelby Mason will be joining us once again, having put pen to paper on a contract through to 2021.

Kelby was one of our many keepers during a bizarre 2019/20 season where seven different players had the number one jersey at various points during the season! The twenty one year hold recently left Hearts, where he had been on the books since 2015, enjoying positive loan spells at Bonnyrigg Rose, Airdrie and Annan Athletic, before spending time at Ainslie Park last term.

The Gaffer James McDonaugh commented on Kelby’s singing “Kelby did well for us when he arrived last season on loan from Hearts. To sign him again, this time permanently, gives us two good goalkeepers competing for the number one jersey.”

Kelby added “I’m delighted to be a part of Edinburgh City again. After my loan spell last season, as soon as I knew James wanted to sign me there was no doubt I would be coming back to the club.”

Great to have you back Kelby!
