Three more added to Clyde squad

Clyde have added defender Robert Halliday and midfielders Jamie Doyle and Jonathon Fisher to their squad in time to form a team on Saturday.

The Cumbernauld club had been forced to release almost their whole squad after relegation from Division One last term.

But they face Stenhousemuir in the Alba Challenge Cup first round on Saturday.

Doyle, 24, was with Glenafton, Halliday, 23, was last in senior football with Hamilton, while Fisher, 17, has been released by Hearts.

All three were involved in the 2-1 win over Partick Thistle in a friendly at the weekend.

Clyde had held open trials in an attempt to find new players after releasing their previous squad to avoid administration - and seven players were signed last week.

The club website says that Doyle, who spent four years at Leicester City as a teenager, was one of those to make an early impression.

He went on to play for Ayr United, Albion Rovers and Arbroath before heading for the junior ranks with Glenafton.

Left-back Halliday was previously with Clyde until under-19 level before heading for Hamilton Accies.

Former Hearts midfielder Fisher will be available for Clyde's youth team, but manager John Brown is hoping he will push for a first-team place.

Brown hopes to further add to his squad before Saturday's opener against Stenhousemuir.

It will be a good test of Clyde's reshaped squad as the Bully Wee will face Stenny in Division Two next season after the Larbert side won promotion via the play-offs.
