COWDENBEATH have announced their first summer signing.

The Blue Brazil have moved for young defender Mackenzie Lemon, following the expiry of his contract with League One Falkirk.

Lemon made nine appearances for the Bairns in the 2021/22 campaign, including seven league starts and two in the SPFL Trust Trophy.

The 19-year-old is the first move made by manager Maurice Ross ahead of next season's Lowland League effort.

Making the reveal in the last few minutes, Cowdenbeath stated they were "delighted" to recruit the youngster.

The club said: "Mackenzie is a defender and previously came through the ranks of the Dundee United youth academy.

"We offer Mackenzie a warm welcome to Central Park."

The player himself, stated: "This season I want to make sure I develop as a player by getting consistent games and working with the manager to make improvements.

"The goal is to make sure the team wins games and that comes from keeping clean sheets."
