Dale returns to Station Park

Monday, 01 January 2018 10:44

The ‘Loons’ management team are delighted to confirm this morning that Dale Hilson is returning to Station Park on an 18 month contract.

The 25 year old striker made history between seasons 2010/11 and 2013/14 when he made a total of 115 appearances for the Station Park club in four loan spells from his parent side at the time Dundee United, netting 14 goals min that final campaign.

He then signed a one year deal with the Athies in the summer of 2014 when United did not renew his contract and made 38 appearances that term netting on twelve occasions.

Full time football then beckoned once again for Dale and he spent last season with Queen of the South, before signing for St. Mirren in the summer of 2017.

However he was released by the Paisley club last week and despite interest from several other sides, the Stirling based striker has opted to return ‘home.’

This news will no doubt be a great boost to the ‘Loons’ fan base as he was a favourite on the terracing throughout his previous spells at the club.

He will however be assessed prior to kick off tomorrow as he has been suffering from a slight niggle in recent weeks.

Jim Weir had hoped to have another new face in his squad for the game against Arbroath but that move has been put on what is hopefully only a temporary hold at present.
