FORMER Scotland international Ian Black could make his long-awaited Dunbar United debut after re-signing with the club.

The 35-year-old made the switch from Tranent Juniors to New Countess Park in March.

However, the football season was brought to a halt by the coronavirus before Black could pull on the black and white shirt for the first time.

Geoff Jones, Dunbar United manager, said: “He signed the weekend before the shutdown.

“He got two nights of training and then the coronavirus shut football down. His debut was down for the Sauchie Juniors game at home. He is a Scotland internationalist and is a big signing for Dunbar.

“He waited a wee bit of time to make his mind up and had a few offers but ultimately he quite liked what he saw in those two training sessions.

“He will bring experience and undoubted quality to the side.”

Black began his career with Blackburn Rovers before winning the Scottish Cup with Hearts in 2012.

He would go on to win the Third Division with Rangers before lifting the Scottish League One title 12 months later.

The midfielder would move south to Shrewsbury Town before returning north of the border and joining his hometown club, Tranent, in 2018.

Meanwhile, fellow East of Scotland Football League side Preston Athletic have announced the signing of Andrew Fleming. The former Hearts and Hibs youngster has also played for Selkirk.
