COWDENBEATH boss Gary Bollan on Tuesday night secured the signature of striker Cian Kavanagh (17) after he featured as a trialist in the Blue Brazil's friendly games against Dundee North End and Montrose.

Cian hails from Dublin and came through the youth ranks of St Patrick’s Athletic and indeed, scored twice in St Pat's' 4-0 win over Cork City in the 2018 National U15 Cup Final in Ireland.

Hearts then secured his transfer at the start of last season and he was part of the Tynecastle club’s development squad in 2019/20.

Cowden fans now look forward to seeing Cian in competitive action at Central Park and will wish him every success in the season ahead.
