Montrose have confirmed the acquisition of experienced goalkeeper Allan Fleming.

The shotstopper spent last season at fierce rivals Arbroath but was not offered a new deal by manager Dick Campbell.

The 32-year-old met up with his new teammates at the weekend as the Gable Endies’ pre-season training got underway and he was welcomed to the club by assistant manager John Holt.

Keepers have been a priority over the summer for manager Paul Hegarty, with both last season’s loanees Jordan Millar and Alex Tokarczyk returning to their parent clubs in April.

Dunfermline-born Fleming joined Kelty Hearts from Cowdenbeath in 2005 and spent nine seasons with the Junior outfit.

In 2014, he moved to East Fife for one season before signing for Todd Lumsden’s Arbroath in July last year, making over 40 appearances for the Red Lichties.

This brings Hegarty’s squad for the coming season to 15 following the recent signing of experienced defender Michael Bolochoweckyj from Clyde.

The club have also confirmed a second pre-season friendly against Highland League side Deveronvale at Links Park on Friday, July 1 with a 7.45pm kick-off.
