Gleeson's Aberdeen Move Confirmed
Tuesday, 19th Jun 2018 11:24
Aberdeen have confirmed that released Blues midfielder Stephen Gleeson has agreed to join them on a two-year deal from July 1st.
The 29-year-old was reported to be close to moving to the Scottish Premiership side, who are in the Europa League in 2018/19, a week ago.
Irish international Gleeson made five starts and five sub appearances for Town having signed a short-term deal in January after his Birmingham contract was terminated by mutual consent.
“I’m delighted to bring his experience to Aberdeen,” Dons boss Derek McInnes told their official website.
“He’s exactly the type of player we wanted for that role. He’s got the qualities to be a very good player, both on and off the pitch and as a club we’ll be able to give him what he demands of himself.”

New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
