TANGERINE’S TEENAGER ARCHIE JOINS ON LOAN FOR REMAINDER OF THE SEASON

28/02/2020

COVE Rangers are delighted to confirm the arrival of Dundee United midfielder Archie Meekison on loan for the remainder of the season.

Archie signed professional terms with Dundee United in the summer but has been involved with the club for around 10 years. He represented Scotland Schoolboys in the 2019 Centenary Shield against our other Home Nations. Archie is a graduate of the Scottish FA Performance School Programme at St John's. He is an intelligent, creative midfielder who likes to get on the ball in the final third where he can hurt teams with his technical ability.

Commenting on the deal, the manager said: “I would like to thank Robbie Neilson & Brian Grant for giving us the opportunity to work with Archie.
“He’s a player we know well as he was in training with us at the end of last year.
“United speak very highly of him so he will be a good addition to the squad and I’m sure the spell at Cove will be good for his development."

Archie will wear the number 22 shirt and goes straight into the squad for tomorrow's Ladbrokes League Two clash with Stenhousemuir at Ochilview Park.

Everyone at Cove Rangers welcomes Archie to Balmoral Stadium and wishes him well during his time with us.
