Tele' Confirms Signing Targets

Morton will follow up the signing of Ryan McGuffie by attempting to sign two more Gretna players - Allan Jenkins and Colin McMenamin.

Name: Colin McMenamin
Age: 26 (12.02.1981)
Position: Striker
Nationality: Scottish
Height: 5' 10"
Former Clubs: Annan Athletic, Newcastle United, Livingston, Shrewsbury Town, Gretna, Livingston (loan)

McMenamin is currently on loan at Livingston and came off the bench to score against us in the 6-1 rout at Almondvale a couple of weeks ago. Something that may be to our benefit in our ability to attract the striker is the fact we have McGuffie. McGuffie and McMenamin both started their careers at Annan Athletic and then moved to Newcastle United together. Their younger brothers both play together at Annan at the moment.

This rumour has been circulating among fans in the ground and on the internet since Saturday and appears in today's Greenock Telegraph.

Roger Graham quotes Douglas Rae as saying: "We have made an enquiry to Gretna for both players. We are aware of the interest of other clubs [Dundee in McMenamin] but are hopeful. We haven’t spoken as yet to the players, but I spoke with Gretna again after Saturday’s match. We have said we are interested in either a permanent transfer for both, or loan deals to the end of the season with a view to making them permanent. Now we just have to wait and see.”
