Another goalkeeper added to squad

By Paul Armstrong

Reds have agreed terms with another goalkeeper and have signed Jim Atkinson, 24, on a pre-contract arrangement.

Carlisle born Atkinson has played all his senior football north of the border listing Queen of the South, Annan Athletic and Gretna 2008 amongst his former clubs.

Like fellow recruit, Alex Mitchell, Jim has spent time with Annan which, coincidentally, is the destination of last season’s ‘keeper, Aaran Taylor.

Jim has played at Borough Park in the past, turning out for Queen of the South in their 2-1 friendly win on the ground three years ago.

He was virtually an ever present for Gretna last season in the Scottish Lowland League and could be making a swift return to Raydale Park with one of Reds’ pre-season games scheduled there next month.
