Stenhousemuir have signed former Dunfermline player Greg Ross.

The 25-year-old sealed a switch to the Warriors from Forfar this week.

He will replace departed captain Willie Lyle at right-back, and assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick is “delighted to get him”.

He added: “Greg has an excellent pedigree and always impressed us when we faced him last season at Forfar.

“He has experience in the SPL with Dunfermline and we believe we have a quality player on our hands.”

Ross is another ex-SPL player to ply his trade with the Warriors after Ally Brown and Stewart Kean.

But the club is not finished yet. Heraldsport understands another three signings are imminent - and one has a background in the English Premier League.

Assistant manager McGoldrick was remaining tight-lipped until the deals are signed and sealed, but did confirm another addition to the Warriors’ defence.

“Alan Lawson has re-signed at left-back, and has a very bright future ahead of him.

“We gave him his debut and he is definitely a bright prospect.

“He is re-signing, just as Kevin McKinlay, Andy Rodgers and Brown Ferguson have, so we have a strong core running through the team and we’re looking to add to it.

“We’re hopeful to add three within the next week but that’s not the end and there are another four places in the squad we would be looking to fill.”

Ross, Lawson and the additional trio will link up with the Stenhousemuir squad next Saturday when the team gets together for the first pre-season session on June 14.

“It’s quite early but we did the same last year,” added McGoldrick.

“The guys are part-time so we also have to work around their holidays, this way we have as many sessions as we can and allow for their time off.”

The Warriors will face tenants East Stirlingshire on July 21 in their Stirlingshire Cup opener, and will also have matches against Montrose and Annan to prepare for the new season.
