East Stirlingshire FC is delighted to announce the signing of Morton midfielder Jamie Stevenson.
Jamie spent a successful five months on loan to Shire last season and he became a top target for coach Jim McInally after his release by the Cappielow club.
“We maybe had to push the boat out a bit to get Jamie but we all know how good a player he is after his spell here last season,” said the Shire coach.
“He had other offers but it says a lot for the people here that we made an impression on him last season. The supporters and the backroom staff really make players feel wanted and that can sometimes count for a lot,” he said.

For his part, Jamie says the fact that he had built up a relationship with the team while on loan was a crucial factor.
“Obviously, you have to look after yourself financially, but apart from that the fact that I knew so many of the players already helped make the decision.
“I enjoyed last season and was disappointed we didn’t win promotion through the play-offs, so maybe there is a bit of unfinished business there,” he said.
The coach has also obtained the signature of former Airdrie United forward, Stephen McGuire.
Stephen was released at the end of last season having made 16 First Division appearances for the Lanarkshire club.
“He was with Motherwell as a kid and I always admired him when we used to play them when I was coach of Celtic’s youth team,” he said.
“He played quite a few games for Airdrie United but he had those chances limited when they ended up in a relegation dogfight and had to go a bit more defensive.
“Stephen is a really clever player who I think will be a big success this season.”
