Goalkeeper Kevin Main could make his Formartine United debut against Forres Mechanics in tonight’s Highland League game at North Lodge Park.

The 35-year-old joined the Pitmedden side from Turriff United yesterday on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Formartine manager Paul Lawson refused to disclose whether his club had matched Turriff’s asking price of £10,000 for Main, who won back-to-back Highland League titles with Buckie Thistle in 2010 and 2011, but added: “I’m delighted to get such an experienced goalkeeper. I believe Kevin made his debut as a 16-year-old for Lossiemouth nearly 20 years ago, so we know we are bringing in a goalkeeper who has a massive amount of Highland League experience.

“We already have two good goalkeepers, Ewen Macdonald and Greg Sim, but I think this is a really good move for the club.

“Kevin is a top-class goalkeeper and when I met him I was impressed by him as a person as well.That’s equally important in the dressing-room and I’m sure he’ll get on great with his new team-mates.

“If we want to win the league it’s important that we get people on board who have won it before.”

Lawson said Main will be in the squad for tonight’s game but refused to confirm whether he would start, adding: “Competition for places is good. Greg has recently started a new job and that has curtailed him a bit. I’ve spoken to Ewen about why we are bringing Kevin in.

“Ewen is young in goalkeeping terms. He has a long career ahead of him so it’s important he gets his head down and works hard.

“He has aspirations to be the number one and that is good to see.

“Kevin trained with us on Monday night and l’m sure he will come and settle in straight away.

“He’s in the squad for the Forres game and it’s possible he could come straight into the side.”
