Formartine United have continued their summer signing spree by landing former Motherwell midfielder Paul Lawson.

Lawson became manager Kris Hunter’s 13th capture when he moved to North Lodge Park in a three-year deal.

Aberdeen-born Lawson, 31, began his career at Celtic where he was captain of the reserve side, and was a regular for the Scotland national under-21 football team.

After being released by the Parkhead club in the summer of 2007 he signed for Ross County, who were then in the Second Division, where he scored twice in 28 appearances which saw the Staggies promoted as champions.

Lawson picked up a Challenge Cup winners medal in 2011 when Ross County won 2–0 against Queen of the South. He later added a First Division Championship winner’s medal to his collection when County gained promotion to the Scottish Premier League.

In 2013 Stuart McCall signed him for Motherwell where he made 25 appearances in two seasons.

Lawson told the Formartine club website: “I’m at the stage in my career that I need to consider what my options out with football.

“Having secured a job in Aberdeen there really was little to think about when Formartine came along with the offer of a contract.

“ I have been fortunate to have picked up some silverware during my career at Ross County and I’d like to think I can continue that with Formartine.”
