FOOTBALLER Dean Brett has signed for junior outfit Bonnyrigg Rose, after ending his stay at Montrose just 19 days in.

Brett, from Tranent, agreed a one-year deal with the SPFL League Two outfit on June 11 but announced last week that he was leaving.

The 23-year-old (pictured below) explained the reasons behind his decision in a post on social media.

He wrote: “I’m gutted because they’re a great club and as far as a set-up comes they aren’t far off full-time teams – great guys and great coaching staff who have been great with me and helping me with my decision.”

The right-back thanked the club, but added: “I just feel the travelling will be too much and I want to be enjoying football just now after what happened last season.

“To sit at a bridge for 50 minutes before I got over, I wasn’t even halfway to Montrose and it made me feel terrible.

“Gutted it’s so far away as it is a great club but I wish them all the best for this season.”

Brett was sacked by Cowdenbeath last season after breaking SPFL rules as he admitted placing bets.

Afterwards he signed for Bonnyrigg and played the final few games of their season, including the Fife & Lothians Cup defeat to Tranent Juniors.

After re-signing for Bonnyrigg, Brett said: “Buzzing to sign with Bonnyrigg Rose, loved the club last season and got some unfinished business.”
