Andy Goram

Signs Autographs At Riverside

Institute manager John Gregg has made his first signing, but can thank former manager Liam Beckett for his connections.

Andy Goram, the former Rangers and Scottish International, has agreed to sign a short deal until the end of the season as cover for the injured Michael Doherty.

Michael chipped a bone in his shoulder during the Portadown game last week and will be out for the remainder of the season. Therefore John was keen to get a back up keeper signed and Liam Beckett contacted Andy on John's behalf.

Andy Goram, now 43 years old, is still involved with the game as he is a goalkeeping coach with Clyde.

The Riverside is somewhere Andy already knows well, as he was a member of the Rangers Legend squad that played at Drumahoe last summer.

As the former Rangers, Oldham Athletic A.F.C., Hibernian F.C and Manchester United star was not registered for any club at present 'Stute have been able to sign Andy outside the transfer window.

The former Scottish keeper will not train with 'Stute, but will only travel if required to play. Supporters are advised that Andy is only signed as back up keeper to Alan Ryan, but John felt it was important to have another keeper signed for the run in.

Institute FC would like to thank Clyde FC for agreeing to the short term deal. Andy will continue to coach during the week with Clyde.
