Smith is latest signing

Liam Smith is the latest player to join Ian McCall’s title winning squad. Liam, who was previously with Hearts, has signed a one year deal.

Manager Ian McCall said “We have been working on this with Hearts for the last few weeks. He comes very highly rated and he fits exactly the profile of our player we want at this club. He is young and hungry to improve. I have spoken to several very well known managers and they speak very highly about his attitude so we are very much looking forward to working with him and giving him the platform to improve.

There are a lot of factors to thank in getting this deal done. Of course Lachlan and the board of directors for the backing but also the attendance for the game against Partick, the increase in season tickets and also the AU500fund. Hopefully the supporters will keep turning up in their numbers and you just never know where that could take us.”

Liam, predominantly a right back, has been at Hearts since the age of 14 and made his first team debut at the age of 18. Since then he has made over 30 first team appearances for Hearts and been on loan at East Fife, Raith Rovers and St Mirren.

Last season he spent on loan with St Mirren where he played 34 times and was an integral part in their Ladbrokes Championship winning first team.
