ARDEER Thistle have moved swiftly in the transfer market as they look to build on last season’s success ahead of their first campaign in the new West of Scotland second division.

The club this week announced two separate signings from local rivals Ardrossan Winton Rovers, who will be playing in the league below the Stevenston side next year.

The first of Sean Kenney’s latest additions was David Donald, who the Thistle boss described as “a really exciting player and more importantly a great boy”.

While Ardeer also got a move over the line for Andy McGregor, who departed Winton Rovers after serving the club for the past six years.

McGregor also captained Rovers, and his experience is something Kenney feels will be vital for his side.

He commented: “I’m really happy to get Andy signed up. He’s a player I’ve known for a long time since playing against him years ago and he has always been a stand out.

“A real leader and a defender who actually has a passion for defending.

“Andy’s the type of guy we’re looking to sign this season, someone who’s all in and will give everything for his teammates and the club. He’ll be a great signing for us.”

Ardeer made it three signings already since the end of the season, when they added Dylan Stevenson to their ranks.

The club announced the signing of the former Greenock Morton, Auchinleck Talbot and Bonnyton attacker yesterday, May 20.

Manager Sean Kenney commented: “(I'm) Delighted to get Dylan signed up and it’s another signing that will make people sit up and take notice. Dylan’s got unbelievable ability and when I thought we could get the deal done it was a no-brainer."
