Broughty Athletic JFC are pleased to announce that former attacking midfielder Danny Cavanagh has returned to the club for the remainder of the season.

The former Dundee FC, Lochee United, Montrose FC and Tayport player signed for the Fed in late July this year and made 14 appearances for the Fed this season in league and cup games, his last game was in the 1-0 home defeat against Camelon at the end of October. He managed to score three goals during his time at the club before setting off on his travels to start a new life in Australia. His return to the city is for personal family reasons.

Speaking at training last night Danny had this to say on his return…“It’s with sadness that I’ve returned to Dundee for family reasons. I was having such a great time in Australia living the dream as some would say until a family tragedy struck. On my return a couple of days ago, I spoke with the gaffer about getting back into training and rejoining the club as I think I’ve overdone things in the food and drink department for the last seven weeks! I’m needing something to concentrate on to take my mind off family matters and the lads here will make sure they get me going. I’m back and I’m raring to get back playing for the Fed asap…”

Broughty manager Keith Gibson said… “I’m delighted despite the sad circumstance to have Danny back at the club, as is everyone else, and barring any problems with the paperwork he’ll go straight into the squad for this Saturday’s Scottish Cup match against visitors Sauchie at Whitton Park.
