Breaking | Reghan Tumilty signs for Morton
by GMFC

Greenock Morton Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of defender Reghan Tumilty on a one-year contract that runs until 10 June 2019.

The 21-year-old right-back spent the majority of last term on loan at Falkirk from parent club Ross County, making 20 appearances for the Bairns in the Ladbrokes Championship.

Tumilty left the Staggies this summer following two seasons in the Highlands and, after impressing as a trialist in a closed-door game against Queen’s Park, gaffer Ray McKinnon has moved to add him to his squad.

Speaking to media officer Jonathan Mitchell after putting pen to paper: “I’ve signed a year’s deal here at Morton and I’m delighted to join the club.

“I left Ross County at the end of the season and went on trial with Hamilton for a couple of weeks then the option came up here.

“I played in a bounce game against Queen’s Park and we won 3-1. I started that match at right-back and played the full 90 minutes. I can also play right wing-back and like to get forward, to get up and down a lot.

“I then trained the Thursday and Friday after that. It went really well and I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to getting playing and hopefully getting some game time.”

Tumilty is eligible to play in tonight’s Betfred Cup Group E fixture against Partick Thistle and says he is champing at the bit, adding: “Hopefully, I’m involved tonight. I’m ready to go.”
