Michael McFarlane Signs

We are delighted to announce the signing of former St Johnstone youngster Michael McFarlane.

Born in Edinburgh, forward player Michael was formerly with St Johnstone having featured regularly for their development and reserve sides.

Following his release from the Perth side, manager Gary Naysmith spoke to ECFC TV about his latest recruit:

“Michael was a player that was recommended to me to have a look at by Callum Davidson after his release by St Johnstone. We offered Michael the chance to come in and do pre season training and this was something that he accepted. Over the last few weeks, Michael has impressed everyone at the club and we are delighted that he has now agreed a permanent deal. Although he is only 18, Michael has a lot of very good attributes one of which is blistering pace. He can play in numerous attacking positions and I am looking forward to working with him and helping him develop as a player.”

Michael met with ECFC TV and had this message for the City supporters:

“I’m really excited to sign for an ambitious Club like Edinburgh City, pre-season has been positive so far and I can’t wait for the start of the competitive matches. I hope that I can help the Club to challenge for promotion as they have been doing over the last few seasons.”

Great to have you on board Michael!
