Kilwinning Rangers are delighted to announce the signing of 26 year-old midfielder Conor McLaughlin.

Conor joins The Buffs after playing under manager Kevin Kelly at Caledonian Locomotives last season. The midfielder impressed on a number of occasions for The Caley which led to him collecting two individual awards there and was also named in the SM Media WOSFL 2nd division team of the season for the 2023/24 season. Conor has experience of League 1 football with Airdrie where he began his senior career but also has great experience of the lower league level after stints at Petershill and Gartcairn as well as Caledonian Locomotives.

Kevin Kelly gets his man

We are delighted to get Conor McLaughlin over the line, given the amount of offers he had in the close season. He give us very good experience in the midfield. Having worked with us for the last 18 months at Caledonian Locomotives he understands how we wish to play and also the standards we want on and off the pitch which will be pivotal for the development of our younger lads at the club either playing or training alongside him.”

Conor will wear the number 8 jersey and his home and away shirts are available to sponsor by emailing Ben Grant on
