Berwick Rangers have made another addition to their squad by signing full-back Lee Hamilton.

The 20 year-old, who normally plays at right back, has joined the Shielfield Park outfit after being released by Stirling Albion.

Hamilton spent part of last season playing on loan with East Junior Super League side Boness United, with whom he made ten appearances.

Meanwhile, Berwick Rangers are pleased to confirm that the club will host Hibernian on Tuesday, July 5, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Hibs enjoyed a successful season last year, despite missing out on promotion from the Ladbrokes Championship, winning the Scottish Cup against Rangers and, subject to confirmation, they may bring the cup to Shielfield with the match their first since lifting the trophy back in May.

The Edinburgh-based side last week announced the appointment of former-Celtic boss Neil Lennon as manager of the club, and he is no stranger to Shielfield Park, having guided Celtic to a 2-0 victory over the Borderers back in 2011.

This will be the third time Berwick have hosted Hibernian in pre-season in three seasons, with the fixture always attracting a good crowd.
