Fed boss Keith Gibson is expecting big things from his new signings Paul McLellan, Jake Mair, Stewart McConnachie and Grant Lawson.

The Broughty Athletic gaffer is hoping to add two more signings in the coming weeks but he is very pleased with what’s happened in the transfer market so far.

Gibson believes the new signings all represent the quality needed to step up into the Super League.

He said: “Grant was Tayport captain for two years. He can play wide left, up front, centre midfield - he’s technically very good, very good on the ball and he’s a goal threat.

“He can create things out of nothing. He’ll be a top player for us this season coming and I was delighted to bring him on board.

“Stewart is probably best just off the front. He’s not going to score 20 goals a season but he’ll create that many for you.

“He brings boys into the game and creates the chances for us to get up the park. He’s a very clever player.

“Paul plays wide right or left. The five or six months he was with us, he was excellent. He was a big part of us getting promotion.

“Again I’m delighted to tie him up and I think he can play at a higher level.

“Jake is another winger. He’s very quick and very direct.

“He caused no end of problems when we played Violet twice in the league last season. I know him from my time at Arbroath.

“He’s not the finished article but he’s going to be a big player for us this season.”
