Squad update ii

Barry Ferguson has been quick to add more quality to the squad with 6 new signings, as half the squad take part in the first of two pre-season fitness tests.

Sammon in black and gold

Conor’s a well known name in Scottish football having graced Rugby Park initially, later Tynecastle, Fir Park and finally the Falkirk Stadium.

Sammon forged a fearsome legacy at Wigan where he commanded a 7 figure transfer fee. After four years at Derby County he went on to short spells with Rotherham, Sheffield Utd and Ipswich before returning north of the border.

At the peak of his footballing prowess he represented Ireland under Giovanni Trappatoni, tasting defeat only against Spain and Austria in his 9 international appearances.

Take me to Church

Daniel’s a former Celtic youth who’s represented East Fife and Dumbarton in League 1 in previous years. The exciting wide man can play at full back or on the wing.

Mark Durnan is a Wasp

In his prime and with a wealth of experience under his belt at a higher level, the former QoS, Dundee Utd and Dunfermline centre half makes the step up from Falkirk.

Barry brings in Boyd

Just 24 and already with plenty Premiership pedigree under the belt former Hamilton forward Steven Boyd joins the Wasps, after a year and a half at Peterhead.

Armour up top

Also joining from Peterhead is 23 year old Ben Armour. Ben cut his teeth first at Morton before successive loan stints at Annan and Dumbarton. He’ll lead the line as Alloa’s number 9.

Mark Lamont in at the Indodrill

The former Partick Thistle youngster joins after a 4 year spell at Clyde where he was integral to the Cumbernauld clubs’ promotion and both of the last two Covid-19 disrupted campaigns.
