    Brian Carrigan rejoins Allan Maitland

    Brian Carrigan this evening signed for Alloa Athletic on loan from Linlithgow Rose until 23rd May, 2009 and will be in the squad for Gayfield on Saturday. Brian Carrigan returned to the junior ranks with Linlithgow Rose in November, 2008 after being frozen out at Hamilton Acccies earlier this season. The 29-year-old had seen his dream switch to the SPL turn sour, failing to make a first-team appearance this term. Carrigan re-joined Hamilton on a one-year deal in the summer after netting an incredible 66 goals in two seasons at Linlithgow Rose. But his £17,500 move - the record fee for a junior player in Scotland - failed to go to plan at New Douglas Park.

    Carrigan spent two seasons at Linlithgow Rose previously and enjoyed success with the East Super League club. Winning five trophies in his first year at Linlithgow, including the Scottish Cup,” Carrigan said. “That’s obviously the biggest thing in junior football, so I was delighted with that. “I think I also got something like 67 goals in two years, so that was nice as well. “We got into the senior Scottish Cup and got put out by Queen of the South, but we had a good wee run and didn’t disgrace ourselves.”
    ‘Carrots’ now hopes to write the next chapter of his career in the SFL with Alloa Athletic, rejoining Allan Maitland with whom he had started his career at Clyde until a move to Stockport County in the summer of 2000, Brian later rejoined Clyde on loan and has also had a spell on loan with Raith Rovers in 2002/2003 season The main thing in football is scoring goals, and Brian has shown in the past that he has the ability to get on the scoresheet, which this season has been a problem for “The Wasps”.
