Final Squad update for the 2017/18 season.
Jamie Cobain has agreed terms and committed to the 2018/19 season. Jamie joined West from SPL outfit Kilmarnock FC early in the season and has been a regular in the starting line up.
The 20 year versatile defender was at the Newcastle Academy from the age of 10 before making his debut for the Newcastle United U21 team on 11th May 2015, he had a loan period with Sheffield United before he moved to Scotland to join Lee Clark’s side.
With deadline day on Saturday, West have signed goalkeeper Andrew Coulson to provide cover for Shane Bland as the season enters its final stages.
West have 9 games remaining to play in the next 4 weeks including 4 in 8 days so Manager Gary Forrest has registered Andrew to help out between the sticks.
Eighteen year old Andrew was on Darlington’s 1883’s books last year and also played for their U17’s/U18’s during his time with them.
Lewis Galpin has moved to neighbours Bishop Auckland. Having spent most of this year on the bench he will be hoping for a regular starting position.
Lewis became the fifth West player to join Bishop this season after Ibby Hassan, Tommy Marron, Adam McHugh and Darren Richardson all made moves during the season.
We thank Lewis for his contributions and wish him well at Bishop.
