Winger Chris Johnston has left Annan Athletic to sign for Clyde on a two-year contract.

Johnston, 24, was one of the star performers for Peter Murphy's Galabankies in their 2018/19 season and was nominated for the PFA Scotland League Two Player of the Year award.

He joins the Broadwood Stadium side, four days after they earned promotion to Scottish League One at the expense of Annan.

In last Tuesday's Scottish League One promotion play-off final first leg, Johnston scored the only goal of the game to give the Galabankies the upper hand.

But two former Annan players, Martin McNiff and Ally Love, struck in the second leg to earn Danny Lennon's Clyde team a 2-0 win on the day and a 2-1 success on aggregate.

"We are delighted to have signed Chris on a two-year deal," ex-Gretna midfielder Lennon told the Bully Wee's website.

"I have been an admirer of him since he burst on to the scene as a 17-year-old in the first-team at Kilmarnock.

"At 24 years of age, we have signed a player who has more than 130 appearances at Premiership and Championship level.

"He created the highest number of assists in League Two this season [19], was shortlisted for league player of the year and was voted into the league team of the year.

"His outstanding quality of play in the opposition's half is there for all to see and the facts speak for themselves regarding his standard of final product in enabling team-mates to score, which was the best in the division.

"There is much more to come from Chris.

"We believe we can add more goals to his impressive number of his assists in the way we will encourage him, and coach him to play in the seasons to come."

On Twitter, Johnston said: "[I'm] delighted to sign for Clyde and can't get wait to get started."
