Defender Danny Grainger has announced that he will leave the club after almost five seasons. After a series of niggling injuries Grainger, from Eamont Bridge, is set to walk away from the professional game.

The 32 year old is set to call time on his career after 17 years at the end of the season.

After being released from United aged 13 he went on to have a successful career playing for Gretna, Dundee United, St Johnstone, Hearts, St Mirren and Dunfermline before rejoining his hometown club.

He made 197 appearances for the blues scoring 34 goals and was a popular figurehead for the squad during his time as skipper.

Despite a lingering hamstring injury he is still hoping for a final chapter before hanging up his boots and is hoping to be fit to play a part should the club make it into the play offs at the end of the season.
