The club are delighted to announce that the signing of midfielder Grant Gillespie (26) has been completed on a 2 year contract.

A product of the renowned Hamilton Academicals youth system, Grant has played over 200 first team matches in his career since making his debut for Accies in August 2009 as an 18 year old.

Grant is a central midfielder who enjoys a tussle in the centre of the park, driving the team forward with his energetic style of play.

His career highlights include playing 140 games for Accies in the SPL and the Premiership, as well as playing in the playoff matches that saw Hamilton promoted to the top flight when a 0-2 deficit from the home leg at New Douglas Park was turned around at Easter Rd, culminating in the penalty shootout victory over Hibs where current Rovers First team Coach Kevin Cuthbert and their teammates sealed their place in Hamilton folklore.

Grant’s time at Hamilton came to an end when he signed a short-term  deal at Dundee United in January 2018.

Grant joined up with his teammates and fellow new recruits Robbie Thomson and Chris Duggan at training this week. He spoke with RaithTV on Monday.
