Andy Munro departs for Forfar
Stenhousemuir and Forfar Athletic agree deal for the permanent transfer of Andy Munro
The club can today confirm Andy Munro has completed a permanent transfer to Forfar Athletic. Stenhousemuir accepted a transfer bid for the player at the end of last week and the player has subsequently agreed personal terms. The club rejected 2 earlier bids for the centre back before ‘The Loons’ met the asking price. Munro is returning to Station Park for a second spell after previously leaving the Angus club to join Stenhousemuir.
Munro joined the Warriors in January 2019 and made his debut away to Aberdeen, helping the club secure a memorable draw and cup replay against the Premiership giants. He was later appointed Captain by then Manager Colin McMenamin and went on to make 61 appearances for the club scoring 6 goals during his spell.
The 28 year old defender had 5 months left to run on his contract at the club.
Andy Munro was full of praise for the club he has enjoyed 2 years of his career at.
‘Stenhousemuir has been a great club for me. When Colin and the club gave me the chance to join it came at a time when I was not enjoying my football as much as I had previously. I have definitely improved as a player and as a person in my time at Stenhousemuir. They have looked after me really well and I am thankful to everyone at the club for the last 2 years. In particular a special thanks to Oscar, Margaret and Jamie who have always looked after me and my family. I wish Stenhousemuir the very best for the rest of the season and for the future’
Chief Executive Jamie Swinney commented.
‘On behalf of everyone at Stenhousemuir we wish to thank Andy for his time at the club. His commitment and dedication throughout his time has been excellent. From his debut against Aberdeen and throughout his 2 years he has made a big contribution to the club, on and off the park. I can think of a number of ‘Captain’s performances’ during his spell and he ahs been a great person to have in and around the club. The bid from Forfar was one we felt represented good value for the club and Andy has happy with his offer. We wish both Andy and Forfar the very best for when football resumes’.
