Former Rangers defender Ross Perry has quit Dumbarton to join ambitious Junior side Darvel after spending the season playing in the third tier of the Scottish game.
Perry spent over a decade at Ibrox and was a regular in the side in 2012/13 following demotion to League Two before joining Raith Rovers in 2014.
Stints with Raith, Northampton Town, Albion Rovers and Clyde have seen him ply his trade in the lower divisions on both sides of the border and the 29-year-old will now join the Ayrshire side.
The Vale currently play in the SJFA West Region Championship and ended last season in seventh place.
Along with Perry, they have also added Daryll Meggatt from East Fife.
Perry’s time at Ibrox coincided with one of the most tumultuous periods in the club’s history and after initially starting well, his performances really dropped off before he fell out of favour completely.
The move to the Junior game is an interesting one for Perry after making 17 appearances for Dumbarton last season – and presumably, Darvel have thrown a few quid his way.
