Blue Star announce two new signings

NEWCASTLE BLUE Star today announced the capture of two new signings.

Former Newcastle United man Jamie McClen put pen to paper for next season after a successful loan stint from Gateshead.

The player was also joined by fellow midfielder and another ex-Tynesiders star Steve Bowey, who turned down a Scottish First Division club to come to Kingston Park.

Blue Star director of football Bob Morton said: “They are quality additions and have experience at the top level.”

Blue Star will also take on newly-promoted SPL side Hamilton Academicals at Kingston Park on August 28 with a 7.30 kick-off.
