They learned he is seeking a striker, centre back, and, as revealed in The Falkirk Herald this week, wingers.
The manager is already looking at four trialists at the moment, including a right-back, and told the meeting he had held talks with representatives of Everton in terms of future transfers.
Unsubstantiated rumours swept around the support in the summer, linking the club with Scottish under-21 international Fraser Hornby while Paul Hartley was still in charge, but nothing ever materialised and Hornby’s profile soared with stand-out performances for Scotland in the Toulon Tournament.
The Bairns board this week pledged funds for McKinnon to strengthen the squad and improve their league position in the SPFL Championship. The Bairns are currently 10th, four points off ninth-placed Alloa.
