Falkirk have made a fifth new signing of the summer.
Scott Harrison has joined the club from Hartlepool United.
The defender has signed a two-year deal.
Paul Hartley said: “Scott is a real physical, no nonsense defender who adds great steel to our backline.
“He has featured at a good level in England having played most of his professional matches in League Two.
“The signing of Scott probably completes my defensive acquisitions for the season ahead. I think this is an area that we are now looking really strong in.
“Our real focus now is on recruiting both midfielders and attackers and talks with a number of our targets are progressing well.
“We hope to potentially have further news on this tomorrow and certainly moving into next week ahead of our return to pre-season training.”
