STRIKER Gavin Reilly will be leaving Queen of the South at the end of the season.

There had been rumours for weeks that the 30-year-old was likely to depart Palmerston for a second time as he wanted to move to a part-time club.

And that proved true, as he signed with former Queens manager Jim McIntyre’s Arbroath on a two-year deal.

Reilly — who made his 200th and potentially last ever Queens appearance against Montrose — has taken the opportunity to begin an apprenticeship outside football.

He said: “I would like to thank everyone involved with Queen of the South during my two spells with the club.

“I’ve met some great people and played with some top players during those seven years and have many fond memories to take away with me. Unfortunately the second spell has a tinge of disappointment as we ultimately failed as a team twice to get promoted, which was the aim when I returned but that’s football sometimes.

“With a new era on the horizon for the club, hopefully Queens can move forward now and push for promotion back to the Championship where they belong.”
