ST MIRREN SIGN EX-HEARTS AND HIBS DEFENDER

0

ST MIRREN have signed former Hearts and Hibs defender Adam Eckersley until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old has been a free agent since leaving Canadian side FC Edmonton, who play in NASL, the second tier of American soccer.

Eckersley was a popular figure with the Tynecastle fans during his one season at the club. 

The move sees him reunite with Jack Ross, now manager of the Paisley men, who was Under-20s coach during the Englishman’s time at Hearts. 

The player said: “I was waiting for an offer that felt right for me. I know how good a coach Jack Ross is and I felt like I had a trusting relationship with him.” 

The defender returns to Scottish football for the first time since leaving Hibs.

Eckersley signed for the Easter Road club after struggling to find a new side following his release from Hearts.

However, he left without playing a single game.
