Carlisle United hero Peter Murphy has bolstered his attacking options at Annan Athletic by bringing back experienced striker Christian Nadé.

Nadé, who counts Sheffield United, Hearts, Dundee, Raith Rovers and Dumbarton among his former clubs, and is the younger brother of ex-Carlisle United man Raphaël, has had a previous trial spell at Galabank.

And on Saturday, the 34-year-old linked-up with the Black and Golds again, having recently been playing for Troon.

“With a wealth of experience, Christian will no doubt enhance our attacking options while also helping develop our younger players,” manager Murphy said on the club website.

"[Assistant manager] Darren Barr was instrumental in bringing Christian to the club, with David Wilson and Chris Johnston also being a big factor.”

While with Sheffield United, Nadé famously scored the winning goal in a 1-0 win over Arsenal in 2006.

Murphy’s men, who are fourth in the Scottish League Two table, will host Clyde this Saturday after their scheduled trip to Berwick Rangers was postponed last weekend.

Last time out, Annan claimed a 3-0 home win over fellow Scottish League Two promotion chasers Peterhead.

Gretna 2008, meanwhile, have completed the double signing of Queen of the South duo Daniel Harvey and Dean Watson.

Harvey joins on a loan deal until June, while Watson has penned an 18-month contract with the club.
