Signing News – Adam Murray

Adam Murray put pen to a new contract late last night as he commits to stay for his 5th season at the Shire. The versatile defender had his season cut short last year after a knee injury kept him out for the second half of the season.

Adam has returned to the team playing in both tour matches and again against Sauchie Juniors last night after he returned from working over the summer in China.

Adam was Shire’s young player of the year two seasons ago and is looking forward to being part of Derek’s 2019/20 squad.

Welcome back Adam.

East Stirlingshire – we hope that the opportunity to come along and cheer on the Shire every alternate weekend is something that Falkirk supporters who perhaps don’t travel to away games would appreciate and given the offer its a very cost effective alternative on a Saturday to “shopping”. Shire have many ex Falkirk 1st team players and youth players within the squad for the new season with Mark Millar, Andy Rodgers, Jamie Barclay, Reis Peggie and Connor Greene, all having previously pulled on a dark blue shirt and with the likes of Nicky Low, Bobby Barr and many other signed up it should be a team worth watching.

The club have tonight agreed to release Graeme MacGregor from his contract for the coming season.

Graeme has played over 160 games for the club during 3 spells in many positions and has always been a popular figure around the club.

William (Bill , Willie) Cowan

We are very saddened to hear that Bill Cowan, a very special member of both the club Board and backroom staff at Firs Park, passed away peacefully yesterday aged 89.

Over many years Bill was always at Firs Park. Outwith his duties as a Director of East Stirlingshire FC he spend a large amount of time caring for the ground, washing the kits and helping the club without reserve in anyway he could. No one will forgot our 1st day each new season when we walked through the turnstiles at Firs Park to see the ground in all it’s resplendant glory, all thanks to Bill’s close season efforts.

He was a true unsung hero of the ‘Shire and will be sadly missed.

East Stirlingshire FC would like to pass on our condolences to Bill’s family at the very sad time.
