Former Burnley winger Robbie Leitch has joined Scottish League One side Cove Rangers.

Speaking of his move, Leitch said: “I’m delighted to sign for Cove. When I played against them last season I was really impressed by their style of football, which is always attacking, with the emphasis of keeping the ball on the deck. You can see that has been drilled into the squad and I know it will suit me and help to get the best from me.

 

“What I love most is getting the ball to my feet and driving at players and I’m really excited to have the opportunity to do that with Cove. The opportunity to play for the manager was also a major attraction. He’s one of the most respected coaches in the game and impressed me when he outlined the ambitions for the club.”
