Striker Paul Brindle signed a pre-contract with Highland League giants Brora Rangers. It wasn’t surprising to hear this. If I was him why would you turn down a glamorous move to Brora with the opportunity of playing in the senior leagues next season maybe and silverware.
A major blow to Clachnacuddin where he has been a star player and certainly deserves this move. The firepower he provides up front will be hard to replace and his deadly finishing. So the Striker will join his new club in the summer unless the clubs can work out a deal for the player to make the switch before the end of the season.
The dressing room will not be filled with a bunch of strangers when he arrives as his former team-mate Scott Graham will be there to help him settle in and become a key player for the Sutherland side. When it comes to pre contract agreements the question of the footballer being committed to the club despite being told their joining another team in the summer arises among supporters this will certainly not affect Brindle as he’s the sort of player that will try his hardest until he ends his time at the club.
Brora Manager Davie Kirkwood should be given a pat of the back for capturing such a brilliant player which is one of the best young players in the league from my point of view.
While Clach boss Ian Polworth will be facing the extremely brutal reality of Highland League finance differences as well the problem of Brora grabbing their top players with no mercy like a child stealing the best sweets in a sweet shop without sharing with the other children.
In the league Cup final last year Brindle delivered when expected on front on a large crowd to help Clachnacuddin beat Buckie Thistle on penalties regardless of the pressure and nerves he faced coming into this huge game for the club.
This will help him be ready for the amount of pressure he will face when it comes to playing for Brora and challenging for the league title. Playing alongside footballers who have done their trade in the Scottish Premier League such as Grant Munro will help his development and make Brindle an even better player. Still, I hope Brora fully appreciate the talent Brindle has and use him effectively in making their forward line more deadly. Good luck to him on his brand new chapter in his exciting football career.
