THERE could be double Dingwall trouble for League 2 defences if Elgin City reunite former Ross County brothers at the club this season.

City manager Gavin Price hopes to wrap up a deal to sign winger Tony Dingwall (26), who has been training with the Borough Briggs outfit.

Tony is the older brother of current Elgin midfielder Russell, with both players coming through the ranks at Ross County.

Price has been keeping tabs on Tony, who spent last season with League 1 champions Raith Rovers before becoming a free agent in the summer.

The player had a loan spell at City in 2017 while still with County, playing three matches in November and early December of that year

"He's been training with us but I don't know if a deal will happen in time for Saturday," said Price.

"If we get him, that would be the last piece of the jigsaw as far as transfer business is done."

City had been trying to bring Archie Macphee back in on loan from Highland League Formartine United, but a deal looks unlikely to be struck now.

Elgin travel to Stranraer on Saturday for their opening League 1 fixture, having won both Betfred Cup group matches so far.
