Stirling has played just 37 minutes of league football since.He returns to the capital, where he started his career with Hibs, to gain regular first team minutes.Stirling spent time out on loan at Berwick Rangers, Cowdenbeath, Alloa Athletic and Arbroath before joining Accies in 2020.Edinburgh City boss Gary Naysmith said: "Ben is a player who I have tried to sign several times since I became the manager at Edinburgh City."He is a versatile player who can play as a central midfielder, a right back or as a central defender."Although he is still only 23, he has gained good experience of playing football at a higher level after making around 20 appearances or so in the Premiership last season with Hamilton as well as making a dozen or so appearance this season in the Championship with the same club."Ben already knows a lot of the players at our club through his younger days at Hibs and I am sure that will help him to make an immediate impact."There was interest in Ben from clubs in League One and also other clubs in League Two but from my first phone call with him he told me that he wanted to join Edinburgh City which was great to hear."After hearing this, we then had to try and make the deal happen and i must thank the board for being able to complete a deal that suited all parties."Follow Lanarkshire Live Sport onTwitter via@LanLiveSport, like us onFacebookor find us onInstagramfor the

Jimi Hendrix estate sues heirs of Jimi Hendrix Experience’s rhythm section
Jimi Hendrix has filed a lawsuit claiming that the estates representing his late Jimi Hendrix Experience bandmates, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, do not have the right to sue them for copyright claims.Dorothy Weber, the lawyer representing Experience Hendrix, LLC and Sony Music Entertainment, filed the suit on Tuesday (January 18) in the US District Court in the Southern District of New York.According to Rolling Stone, it comes after a letter Sony Music received in December from British lawyer, Lawrence Abramson, in which he claimed the label owed Redding and Mitchell’s estates performance royalties for roughly 3billion streams of the Experience’s songs.Abramson didn’t specify an amount they were looking for but did say that “such streaming figures and sales is estimated to be in the millions of pounds”. He added: “Ignoring this letter may lead our clients to commence proceedings against you and may increase your liability for costs.”The letter prompted Weber to take acton on behalf of Experience Hendrix and Sony, who claimed they were unable to be sued by the defendants because both Experience members previously signed waivers.Weber has alleged that Mitchell signed a document in September 1974 releasing the Hendrix estate from legal claims and agreeing not to sue the Hendrix estate. She’s claimed that Redding, too, signed a similar document in April 1973.
