Lewis Kidd Signs for Edinburgh City

As preparations for the new season keep moving at pace, we are delighted to announce that Lewis Kidd is Gary Naysmith’s latest signing.

Lewis has terrific experience on his footballing CV, having started his career at Celtic, before moving to Queen of the South, making more than 80 Championship appearances across two spells with the Doonhammers, punctuated by three seasons in the Championship with Falkirk. His second spell in Dumfries ended 2020 when he signed for East Kilbride, where he subsequently joined Albion Rovers on loan following the curtailment of the Lowland League.

A versatile player, comfortable in midfield or fullback roles, Lewis is the latest in boss Gary Naysmith’s summer recruitment programme and he had this to say to ECFC TV on Lewis’ signing:

”I am delighted to announce Lewis Kidd as our third permanent signing of the summer as we continue to build our squad for the upcoming season. Although only 26, Lewis has a vast amount of experience at a higher level including spells in the championship with both Falkirk and Queen of the South. Lewis can play in several positions on the pitch and this will be a real valuable asset to us moving forward. I am looking forward to starting to work with him on the 15th June when we resume pre season training”.

ECFC TV caught up with Lewis who had this to say on putting pen to paper:

“I am delighted to have this deal done and dusted, having spoken to the Gaffer about his vision and plans for the future I can see that this is a brilliant club with great ambition that matches my own. I am massively excited to meet my new teamates and getting pre-season underway. I hope I can help the club move to the next level this coming season.”

Another great addition to the squad; welcome to City Lewis!
