Welcome home Colin

Colin McMenamin is all set to sign a contract which will see him in the blue of Queens to the end of the season.

Said Colin, "After the fiasco at Dundee I was glad when I got the chance to join Queen of the South and I`m enjoying my football down here."

Although born in Glasgow he moved to Dumfries when he was less than a year old and was raised in the town. He actually signed an `S` form for Queens as a 15-year-old but moved on after a year and a half.

His former clubs to date were Annan Athletic, Newcastle United, Livingston, Shrewbury, Gretna and latterly, of course, Dundee.

Adds our new recruit, "I was brought up watching Queens as a young boy and although I reside in Gartcosh I regularly visit my mum who`s still at Lochside. So no doubt she`ll see a lot more of me now.

"I used to love those `local derby` games when I was at Gretna and we met Queens. They were some battles but I enjoyed them, even thought I got `pelters` at times.

"When I arrived at Palmerston I was no `stranger` as I knew most of the boys. It was good to get that first goal `under my belt` at Ross County and I`m hoping it`s the first of many."


Bob Harris and Allan Johnston have minor knocks but it`s hoped both will feature on Saturday. Rocco Quinn still has hamstring trouble and could be doubtful. Craig Reid however is the biggest doubt, still nursing bruised ribs.
