Signing News – Bobby Barr (Dumbarton)

Shire continue to build their squad for the 2019/20 season and this morning they have added the experienced attacking midfielder Bobby Barr from League One Dumbarton.

The 30 year old former St Johnstone, Albion Rovers, Livingston, Morton, Brechin City, Raith Rovers and Dumbarton player has over 430 SPFL appearances and 67 goals to his name as well as a 2nd Division title, 3rd Division title and was previously a PFA player of the year winner.

Derek & Andy we’re delighted to have the opportunity to see Bobby join the Shire after turning down a new deal at Dumbarton and rejecting offers from a number of League 1 & 2 sides.

Derek Ure commented “ To have Bobby join again shows the desire the club have to build a title winning side for next year, Bobby brings years of experience and knows what winning leagues is all about”. Bobby joins Nicky Low, Jamie Dishington, Eddie Malone and Shaun Brown as new faces so far who have signed for next season. More announcements are to follow over the coming days and weeks.
