Livingston FC is delighted to announce the re-signing of former Lion Josh Mullin from Ross County until the end of the season, with the player having the option to agree a further two years at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
A familiar face to the Livingston fans, Josh made 88 appearances for the club, scoring 9 goals before leaving for the Highlands to join Ross County in the summer of 2018. He would go on to claim a second promotion to the Premiership in 2018/19 season, helping to fire the Staggies to the Championship title as well as grabbing two goals as Ross County completed a league and cup double, defeating Connah’s Quay Nomads for the Irn-Bru Challenge Cup.
Amongst those 9 goals for the Lions though, who can forget Josh’s final strike before leaving at the end of 2017/18 season, firing home the equaliser at Tannadice in the Premiership play-off semi-final first-leg before Scott Pittman struck to give us a 3-2 lead going back to Livingston. A moment that will live long in the memory of the Livingston support!
Head of Football Operations David Martindale said: “I’m absolutely delighted to get Josh back to the club. Josh played a massive part in our success in both the League 1 and Championship seasons and it’s a fantastic signing for the club. I brought Josh here from Albion Rovers originally as you could see the potential he had and it’s fair to say he has kicked on massively and I personally believe there is still more to come.
“To be honest, we were all gutted that Josh left after our promotion to the Scottish Premiership as he was such a pivotal player for us in those two previous campaigns. Since the day Josh left the building, I’ve been actively looking to replace him with a modicum of success – I never thought that trying to find a right-footed, right-winger would be so hard! I didn’t envisage that when he left the club, that Josh himself would be the one filling the void he left two-years later.
“We are all absolutely delighted that Josh has chosen Livingston as the club he would like to continue his career with. I’m sure he will be a big hit with the fans and I know the lads that are in the changing room just now that have played with Josh previously are delighted – as are the coaching staff who are more than happy that Josh is back at Livingston.
“Here’s hoping that his second spell is a successful as his first with the club where we won back-to-back promotions. A big ask for sure, but I can honestly say that every day this squad of players and staff will do their upmost to make sure that all Livi fans continue to be proud of their team.”
Josh will wear the vacant number 14 shirt for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
