Barry Wilson has persuaded veteran defender Marvin Andrews to sign for Elgin City.

City boss Barry Wilson revealed how the 38-year-old agreed to sign a contract with the club after a successful three-match trial.

“It’s great news, having seen what he can bring to the team and the club,” Barry said. “The reaction that we’ve had from the fans and the players as well has been great.”

Andrews, who was capped 101 times by Trinidad and Tobago, had been reluctant to commit his future to Elgin due to the amount of travel involved from his Kirkcaldy base.

However, he said he had been won over by the Moray club and its supporters during his three trial games.

“I’m coming to the end of my career but I’m still enjoying playing on a Saturday,” Marvin told the Northern Scot. “I’m just so happy that Barry has given me the opportunity to be here and show what I’m still capable of at the age of 38.

“It’s a very, very nice club with great supporters, and the team plays very attractive football.”

Andrews helped City beat East Fife and Clyde in their first two home games of their League 2 season, winning man of the match awards in both 1-0 successes.

He also scored in the 2-1 away defeat at East Stirling.

“Two awards and scoring a goal means I couldn’t have had a better three trial games. I hope I’ve impressed the manager.”
