City lift Lowland League trophy

Edinburgh City captain Dougie Gair lifted the Lowland League trophy after Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Gretna 2008 and hailed it as the highlight of his City career.

City were confirmed as champions last weekend and were presented with the silverware by SFA Chief Executive Stewart Regan in front of their home fans.

Gair, who has spent nearly a decade with the club, won the East of Scotland Premier Division in 2005/06, but ranked this season’s triumph as the crowning moment of his time in black and white.

“It’s definitely up there in terms of City stuff,” said the skipper.

“Winning the Lowland League is a big achievement for the whole club.

“We’ve won the league before, but nothing compares to this – this is special.

“I’m delighted we’ve won the league but we need to crack on now.”

City boss Gary Jardine said “Winning the league while we were training wasn’t great and then obviously the defeat last Sunday, but to actually get the trophy on our home ground makes it a lot sweeter.”
