Berwick Rangers have confirmed the latest addition to their squad for the 2013-14n season.
Stephen Tulloch, a central defender, has agreed a deal to join the club from Forfar, and is seen as an ideal replacement for skipper Chris Townsley who last week left the club to join East Stirling.
Tulloch has played over 100 games for Forfar and actually played for a short time on loan with Berwick in the 2011-12 season, when he made four appearances coming back from injury.
Assistant manager Robbie Horn said Tulloch is a welcome addition to the squad - “he has a physical presence and he can also be quite vocal on the pitch,” he said.
Tulloch is likely to form a central defensive partnership with Dougie Brydon who is also set to put pen to paper on a new deal.
Brydon, who missed the run in to the end of lastv season with a groin injury, is keen to return for a second season, and Horn says he expected the deal to be concluded shortly.
Meanwhile, Horn has also revealed that Berwick will step up their search for a new goalkeeper this week, following the departure of Marc McCallum, who returned to parent club Dundee United after his loan spell expired at the end of last season.
