Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern has been snapped up by Hamilton Academicals.

The Accies – who earned promotion to the Scottish Premiership last season courtesy of a play-off win over Hibs – have signed the Falkirk shot-stopper on a one-year deal.

McGovern – who was club captain at Falkirk – completed the move following his return from Northern Ireland’s tour of South America.

Ironically the 29-year-old goalkeeper – who has one international cap – is joining the side that defeated Falkirk in last season’s promotion play-off semi-final.
