Just some items which caught the eye

Airdrie United have signed defender Eddie Forrest. However, it will be a while before he dons their shirt in anger as he is carrying a suspension from his East Stirling days. Thirty one year old Forrest has worn the colours of nine clubs during a 14 year career that looked to be over when he left the Shire in the summer after two years. Diamonds boss Jimmy Boyle stepped in with a deal as he is looking for Forrest’s experience to help his youngsters. Boyle said: “Eddie missed out against Forfar as he has a three match ban to serve so it will be a couple of weeks until we see him play competitively.”

Ayr United have added former Queen of the South and Airdrie United midfielder Ryan McCann along with ex-Clyde and Dundee full back Eddie Malone to their squad on a permanent basis. Manager Brian Reid said: “
I am delighted to get these guys on board on a permanent basis after being impressed with them in training and when they played as trialists.”

Stirling Albion’s attempts to sign Dutch striker Sylvano Comvalivus have been delayed with manager John O’Neill unsure whether the player will be on-board for this weekend’s trip to Raith Rovers. Picking up on the vernacular popular with Neil Lennon of Celtic when talking of signing deals, O’Neill said: “
I thought we would have had that deal completed by now, however we are not over the finishing line on that one as yet.

Morton defender David MacGregor, who suffered ankle ligament damage in the opening day of the league season against Stirling Albion, stepped up his comeback when he played for the Greenock side in a closed door game. Ahead of the game, manager Allan Moore said: “
David has worked hard to get back and this will give him another step in the right direction.”

Stenhousemuir striker Simon Lynch, who has still to kick a ball in anger for his new club following his summer move from East Stirling, has received the results of the scan taken on his injured ankle. The scan showed that Lynch has suffered no damage to his ankle. He has been given the all clear to start building up his training with a view to being fully fit for the Warriors within the next month. Manager John Coughlin said: “We are needing a goalscorer in or side and hopefully Simon will be with us sooner rather than later.”
