Falkirk Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Keelan Adams on a two-and-a-half-year deal from Cumbernauld Colts following an agreement between the two club.

The 22-year-old will return to Cumbernauld Colts on loan for the remainder of the season.

A natural right-back, the defender has played nearly every minute for the Broadwood side this season in the Scottish Lowland Football League. He will train with The Bairns for the remainder of this season while continuing to play for the Colts, before joining up with the squad full time in the summer.

Falkirk Manager John McGlynn said of his latest signing:

“Keelan is one that we have been tracking for some time. We were tipped off to him earlier in the season, and we’ve been keeping an eye on him along the way. I saw him play myself against The Shire on Tuesday night, and I thought he did really well.

“I would like to give my thanks to David Proctor and Darren Dods at Cumbernauld Colts for allowing him to come in for a few weeks training in January. We were very impressed with what we saw. He’s a 22-years-old right back that is six feet tall and very athletic. He’s been a bit of a late developer, but he’s an ambitious player and he ticks all the boxes for what we’re looking for.

“We’ve been looking into the Lowland League, just as we do with every other league. Most recently Jamie Walker came out of Caledonian Braves, went to Kelty, and got a move to Dundalk, so there’s good players in the division. It’s somewhere we continue to look for players.

“We’ve loaned him back out to Cumbernauld Colts for the rest of the season, so he’s going to be one coming in over the summer. He’s got two years from then that will take him to the summer of 2026. He’ll then be up for joining the squad and fighting for his place in the team.”

Welcome to Falkirk, Keelan!
