Derek Stillie is standing as a candidate for the Conservatives in next month’s snap General Election.

The 45-year-old goalkeeper – who has played for Dundee United, Dunfermline and Aberdeen amongst others – will campaign to become an MP for Central Ayrshire.

The Tory parliamentary candidate, said: “It is a great honour to have been selected to contest Central Ayrshire for the Scottish Conservatives and to have the opportunity to seek to represent my home constituency as a Member of Parliament.

“If, with the support of local people, I am fortunate enough to be elected, I will be a strong voice for the people of Central Ayrshire and will work hard to deal with the issues most important to local communities.”

A Scots Tory source said: “Scotland needs saving from Nicola Sturgeon’s independence referendum, and in Central Ayrshire, Derek is going to make sure it’s kept out for good.”

The former goalie came up through the ranks at the Dons and went on to make 25 appearances in all competitions – being apart of the squad that won the League Cup in 1996.

He returned to Scotland to sign for Dunfermline, where he made 118 appearances – and helped them reach the final of the Scottish Cup in 2004.

Then Dundee United signed him in 2005, where he spent two years before going Gillingham.

Also running in Central Ayrshire are Louise McPhater (Labour) and Phillippa Whitford (SNP).
