Berwick Rangers are on the verge of announcing two new signings, plus another contract extension.

The club has confirmed that the deals are due to be concluded ‘within a matter of days.’

A statement on then official website said:

“The club look set to announce two new signings plus another player contract extension in the next few days.

“Deals have almost been completed with a Division Two left sided player and a defender from a Division One outfit.”

Manager Colin Cameron has already confirmed the following players for the 2014-15 season:

Goalkeepers Billy Bald and Michael Andrews; defenders Stephen Tulloch, Devon Jacobs, Jonny Fairbairn and Dean Hoskins; midfielders Steven Notman, Ross Gray, Paul Currie, Ben Miller and Cameron; and front men Andy Russell, Scott Dalziel,Josh Morris and Dean Carse.

Cameron also wants to see defender Dougie Brydon in pre-season after he missed the whole of the 2013-14 campaign through injury.

Meanwhile, Kenny O’Brien has left Berwick Rangers to join Vale of Leithen.

The midfielder/forward had originally agreed to stay on at Shielfield for another season, but it was then announced that he was being made available for transfer.

O’Brien, who scored four goals last season, had become frustrated at not featuring regularly in the first team squad and expressed a wish to play regular football.

His switch to Vale of Leithen was confirmed last week, where he will team up with former Berwick Reserves manager Mark Lamb, who has taken over at the East of Scotland League side.

*The Scottish Professional Football League has confirmed that the official fixture list for the 2014-15 season will be published on Wednesday, June 18.

Berwick will play in SPFL 2 when of course there will be the added pressure for teams trying to avoid finishing bottom of the table.

The much-vaunted pyramid play-off system is due to be introduced which means the side finishing tenth will have to fight for their survival with the winners from the Highland and Lowland Leagues.
