Buddies go for Birchall
Coventry midfielder set for loan move


Skysports.com understands Coventry City midfielder Chris Birchall is due to join St Mirren.

The Trinidad & Tobago international joined The Sky Blues from Port Vale last summer, but is set for a loan move to the SPL.

Birchall is expected to link up with St Mirren until January in order to secure regular first-team football.

The 23-year-old's sole appearance this season came as a substitute in the first round of the Carling Cup against Notts County.

He has struggled for opportunities since Iain Dowie took over as manager at The Ricoh Arena and is aiming to finalise a loan move before the close of the transfer window.

St Mirren have enjoyed an encouraging start to the new SPL season and sit seventh in the table after picking up six points from four games.

Sjarhain,
            i can't remmber the score, but I think you right. We lost 2-1 or something. And yes they played 2 games. Actually, they did not play that badly. Dilly played. He looked kind of fat. Texeira was jamming plenty tackles on them Scotmen that evening. All in all, it was an enjoyable evening.

Saints Get Player On-Loan

Saints Get Player On-Loan
saintmirren.premiumtv.co.uk


Coventry City's Chris Birchall has agreed to go on-loan to St Mirren until this coming January, at the least.

Twenty-three old Birchall is an attacking midfielder who has been capped 26 times for the Trinidad & Tobago national side.

He played the first five years of his senior career with Port Vale before moving to Coventry City in 2006.

Chris has been assigned the squad number 46.


Birchall set for SPL move
ccfc.premiumtv.co.uk


City midfielder Chris Birchall is set to make a transfer deadline-day loan switch to Scottish Premier League outfit St Mirren.

The Trinidad & Tobago international, 23, has struggled to hold down a regular place in the Sky Blues side this season and is expected to link-up with the Buddies until January 1.

Birchall joined City on the eve of the 2006/07 season in a 300,000 deal from Port Vale and made 18 starts and 12 substitute appearances during his debut campaign.

But he has featured in just one game so far this season, coming on as a second-half substitute in a Carling Cup first round tie against Notts County.

Should the deal be completed today, he will go straight into the St Mirren squad for Sunday's mouthwatering clash against Celtic at Parkhead

Buddies complete Birchall signing

Quote
St Mirren have signed 23-year-old Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Chris Birchall on loan from Coventry City.

He will be at St Mirren Park initially until January, although that could be extended depending on his performances.

Birchall, capped 26 times, spent five years at Port Vale before signing for Coventry for 300,000 in 2006.

He made 17 starts last season for the Championship outfit but has made just one appearance this term for Iain Dowie's side.

Trinidad connection key for Birchall

Trinidad connection key for Birchall
By: Evening Post.


21:14 - 01 September 2007

Chris Birchall has revealed that he was sold on the switch to St Mirren by his international Buddies.

The 23-year-old Coventry midfielder is the latest in a long line of Soca Warriors to ply their trade in Scotland with Falkirk's Russell Latapy and Marvin Andrews, now with Raith Rovers, the most notable. Former Dundee United and St Johnstone striker Jason Scotland, Collin Samuel, Brent Sancho and Kelvin Jack also enjoyed spells in Scotland.

After securing a loan move, he said: "A few of my team-mates who are involved with Trinidad played in the SPL and the First Division and they told me to come up and enjoy my football."

BBC Sport

 
New midfielder Chris Birchall is set to go straight into the St Mirren side, having joined on loan from Coventry.
Striker Craig Dargo, defenders Eddie Malone and Ian Maxwell and midfielder Craig Molloy are missing with injuries.

Celtic have no selection worries but will be without striker Kenny Miller, who has moved on to Derby.

Manager Gordon Strachan may freshen his side up after they endured a gruelling 120 minutes against Spartak Moscow in their Champions League qualifier.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

St Mirren squad: Smith, Van Zanten, Corcoran, Murray, Reid, Kean, Burke, Mehmet, Brady, Miranda, Howard, Haining, Potter, Brittain, Mason, O'Donnell, McCay, Barron, McGinn, Birchall.

Celtic squad: Boruc, Wilson, Caldwell, McManus, Naylor, Nakamura, Scott Brown, Donati, McGeady, Riordan, Vennegoor of Hesselink, Killen, McDonald, Zurawski, Mark Brown, Pressley, Kennedy, Hartley, Sno, O'Dea.
