Liam Brown Signs Up

Liam Brown Signs On For Another Season

Young midfielder Liam Brown is the latest member of the first team squad to commit to the club for another season!

Liam joined initially on loan from Premiership Motherwell, making a permanent move at the start of last season. The skilful midfield man has become a firm favourite with the supporters and manager James McDonaugh commented on Liam’s signing “Liam was an important signing for us last season especially with us losing Andrew Black in the central midfield area. I’m looking forward to having Liam back to strengthen our squad for next season and hope he can kick on again.”

Hopefully we’ll see Liam back on the park as soon as possible!


Liam Henderson Commits for another season

Liam Henderson Commits To Another Season!

Everyone at the club is delighted that 2020’s player of the year Liam Henderson has committed himself to City for another season. Hendo was in superb form last term, including an amazing spell which saw him named SPFL League 2 player of the month for December 2019.

With pace and skill and a real goal threat from set-pieces, Liam was an integral part of the squad and his signing is a major show of intent for the next season – whenever that may start!


TV star Hendo spoke to Edinburgh City TV and said “I’m happy to resign glad to get it sorted. I’m looking forward to get back into the swing of things. Hoping to have another successful season pushing more for that title.”

Manager James McDonaugh commented “Liam overcame a tough start to last season but hit a real purple patch which rightly earned him SPFL recognition. Being voted Player of the Year was also confirmation that he’s a young player with great potential so it’s positive to have him secured for the new season. ”

Keep an eye on Edinburgh City TV later tonight for more Hendo content…

Edinburgh City TV spoke to Danny and he was excited to stay on “I’m delighted to be staying at city for next 2 years, I had a few offers to go elsewhere but City felt like it was right and the best place for me. I’m most excited to be apart of the project here at the club to get us to the next level. So really it was no brainier!”
