Cove to groundshare with four clubs next season

Cove Rangers have groundshare agreements in place with four teams for next season.

Banks O’ Dee, Formartine United, Inverurie Loco Works and Keith will host Cove's home matches for season 2015/16.

The fixture list for 2015/16 is due to be released within the next two weeks and at that point the Aberdeen side will sit down with the league secretary and the aforementioned clubs to decide on the exact venues for all of their home games.

A statement from Cove read: "The club are, of course, indebted to the above clubs and would like to put on record our appreciation of their support in what is going to be an interesting and exciting season for us.

"The main thinking behind the use of four pitches is to give the league secretary maximum flexibility for a continuous flow of matches.

"The Directors have underlined their commitment to the club in terms of making funds available towards our ground-sharing and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal fans and sponsors, in advance, for their continued support over the coming season."

Cove have been forced to find a temporary groundshare solution as their old home of Allan Park doesn't meet SFA club licensing rules and the new ground they are relocating to at Bobby Calder Park won't be ready until season 2016/17.

Rothes sign Bobrowski

Rothes have signed former Strathspey striker Matty Bobrowski.

The Polish forward has most recently played for Spey Valley in the Junior ranks.

Bobrowski will join another new signing up front for Rothes next season - after Craig MacMillan moved to Mackessack Park from Buckie.

In further good news for the Speysiders, Callum McIntosh has penned a contract extension.

Formartine bring in four including striker Wood

Formartine have signed striker Garry Wood from Montrose.

The North Lodge Park club have also recruited Graeme Rodger from Deveronvale and brought in former Cove winger Max Berton.

That trio join forward Neil Gauld at United, following his decision to leave Inverurie Locos.

Three sign new deals at Vale

Three key members of Deveronvale's squad have pledged their immediate futures to the club.

Martin Charlesworth, Craig Cowie, and Rhys Fyfe, have all agreed extended contracts.

Vale boss Ally MacLeod said: "I am delighted that three key players have put pen to paper to sign extensions until 2018.

"Martin is one of the best forwards in the league and has shown an excellent and professional attitude towards training and games. I am looking forward to working with him over the next few years.

"Craig has shown great commitment and desire to lead the team as captain through a tough spell for the club.

"He is a player that we feel can improve and go on to be the best in the league. Craig's contract will see him awarded with a testimonial in 2018.

"Rhys has taken his opportunity in the first team and grabbed it with both hands, continually working hard in training.

"Rhys has and will continue to develop under the guidance of our goalkeeping coach to go on and be a top goalkeeper."

Strathspey strengthen with signing of Mackay

Strathspey manager Brian Grant has already started building for next season by signing James Mackay from Brora Rangers.

The wide man can play on either wing and has moved from the Highland League champions to Seafield Park on a two-year deal.

Mackay featured early on for Brora this season, but then suffered a hip injury and subsequently struggled to win a place in the squad.

Grant said: "James can play on the left or right of midfield and I am pleased he has agreed to come to the club.

"He is a good player and scored for Brora when they drew 1-1 in a friendly against Rangers last pre-season."

Hay leaves Formartine

Arbroath have announced the signing of Graham Hay from Formartine.

The defender has decided to leave North Lodge Park to play for the Scottish League Two club.

Bailey off to Oz

Lossiemouth's Darren Bailey has moved to Australia.

The wide man left Scotland to play for Yoogali Soccer Club Down Under.

He said: "I am enjoying the new lifestyle and just getting a new fresh look on life from moving so far away from home."

Scott Graham has also recently relocated to Australia, where he plays for Wagga Wagga FC.

Brora still hold the registration for the 27-year-old, who is on loan at the New South Wales club.

But Graham could yet make the move permanent.
