The versatile defender has also played for Dunfermline, Morton, East Fife and American outfit Carolina Railhawks.

Annan manager Murphy said: “Having known Kevin for a few years, firstly meeting and playing with him at Ayr United then doing our UEFA A Licence together, I was very excited to get him in.

“Kevin knows Scottish football inside out and has countless contacts in the game.

“Most importantly, his enthusiasm and work ethic is infectious – which the players will thrive on. I feel Kevin is one of my most important signings to date.”
