The 23-year old centre back completed the move for an undisclosed fee after Warriors’ captain Andy Munro left Ochilview to rejoin Forfar Athletic.

Corbett has spent his entire senior career with Spartans where he made his debut at 19 and went on to represent the Lowland League side over 100 times.

He was also named captain at the start of the 2019/20 season.

Speaking to Stenny’s official website, the defender said: “I’m excited to be joining Stenhousemuir FC. It’s a club with a great history and big ambitions.

"I can’t wait to work with the players, Davie and the coaching staff.

"It’s a new challenge for me personally that I am ready to take on and enjoy the journey.

"I am looking forward to being part of the club and hope that we go on together to achieve success.

"I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to develop my career here at Stenhousemuir and look forward to the future.”

Warriors manager Davie Irons added: “We are really pleased to be able to bring Adam to the club.

"With Andy Munro moving on it was important we secured a player of high quality and potential to replace him.

"Adam has vast experience for a relatively young player and is one we feel can become a top player at our level and possibly beyond.

"He is athletic, he communicates well and he is a good passer of the ball.

"He has been a captain at Spartans for the last two seasons which demonstrates real leadership qualities.

"Adam is also ambitious and has a real desire to improve and progress which is exactly the type of character we are looking for here at the club.

"We look forward to getting Adam integrated into the group and to seeing what he can add to our team over the coming seasons.”

Spartans manager Douglas Samuel said: “To be honest I’m surprised no one has taken a chance on him before now, I believe he has the potential to play even higher.

“I’d like to wish him all the best for the future and look forward to tracking his progress in the game. He’s a class act on and off the park.”
