Falkirk forward Anton Dowds has signed a pre-contract agreement with Partick Thistle, confirming that the 25-year-old will depart the Bairns in the summer.

Having made 11 appearances since returning on loan from Dick Campbell’s Arbroath in January, he has went on to score seven goals after that successful spell in the Championship on loan and he looked like a player revitalised.

Injury has hampered the hitman in recent times, but he returned during Satuday’s 3-1 victory over East Fife off the bench.
