Falkirk Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Rumarn Burrell, subject to SFA clearance.

The 21-year-old forward joins The Bairns on a one-year deal until the end of the 2022/23 season.

After starting his career at Grimsby Town, Rumarn made four appearances for the Mariners before signing for Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee. He made his debut for Middlesbrough in January 2021 before spending time on loan with first Bradford City and then Kilmarnock, where he helped the Ayrshire side win the 2021/22 cinch Championship.

Rumarn will wear the number 19 for Falkirk this season.

Falkirk Manager John McGlynn said of his latest signing:

“We’re delighted to get Rumarn in. He was at Kilmarnock last year, but after signing in the summer  he unfortunately picked up an ankle injury early in the season and it took him a long time get back, by which time Kilmarnock had brought in other strikers and he found it hard to get in the team, so he didn’t get too much game time.

“On the bits and pieces that we saw of him last year we felt he’d make a good addition, he will give us more strength and depth to our squad in regards to the striking department. He’s a player who will run in behind, he’s a hard-working striker and will press from the front. We’ve given him an opportunity to show what he can do, it’s a one-year contract and if he does well there’s an opportunity to extend that.”
