Four in, one out in hectic day at Almondvale

LIVINGSTON manager Gary Bollan has been busy in the run up to tomorrow's Third Division match with Albion Rovers, adding no fewer than four new faces to his squad.

Heading the list of new boys is former Aberdeen and Brann Bergen striker Robbie Winters.

The vastly experienced 34-year old will bolster Bollan's attacking options and will team up with younger brother David who joined Livingston from Ross County last January.

"Robbie Winters will bring goals and a new dimension to the side so I am delighted to have secured his signature ahead of other clubs," said the Livi manager this evening.

"Giving Robbie the opportunity to play alongside David has been a key factor in convincing him that his immediate future should be at Livingston, and we are delighted to have agreed a deal."

Bollan has also completed a triple swoop on the Edinburgh clubs today with the loan signings of Stephen 'Hubby' Husband and Jonathon Brown of Hearts, and young Hibernian player Ewan Moyes.

A dynamic box to box midfielder, Husband is no stranger to assistant coach Brian Welsh, who brought him up through the ranks at Cowdenbeath, while right sided defender Brown will add balance and much need stature to the squad.

Moyes, meanwhile, will provide height, strength and a no-nonsense approach at the centre of defence.

All four will be available for selection for tomorrow's game at Cliftonhill.

To complete a hectic day of transfer business at Almondvale, exciting youngster Joe McKee has agreed a permanent move to high flying Premiership side Burnley.

Joe spent a few days training with Burnley at the end of last season and left a very positive impression on Clarets manager Owen Coyle.

He will leave to join a growing Scottish contingent at Turf Moor, in a deal that represents a fantastic opportunity for the player and good business for Livingston.

The deal will include a friendly match visit to Almondvale for Joe and his new team-mates.

Everyone at the club wishes Joe well and will look forward to following his progress in England, where he joins former Livi youngsters James McPake, Graham Dorrans and Robert Snodgrass.
