Lanark delight as Gareth Halford is back between the posts at United

Halford is a welcome addition to the United squad

Gareth Halford has returned to Lanark United after a short spell at Clydesdale rivals Carluke Rovers.

The goalkeeper, who was last season’s player of the year for the Moor Park club, left to join the Rovers in October but has put pen to paper on a new deal with United.

Lanark currently occupy ninth place in the Central District Second Division, with three wins in 12 fixtures.

The Yowes will be hoping that Halford can help the club move up the table and the goalkeeper could feature in Lanark’s clash against Ashfield on home soil this Saturday.
