Experienced duo to join Lions squad

Livingston are pleased to confirm the addition of Maurice Ross and Mark Fotheringham to Gary Bollan's first team squad.

Both free agents, Ross and Fotheringham are to join the club immediately on a short-term basis until January.

The deals have been lined up in co-operation with the players' agent and will allow both players an opportunity to play football before the next transfer window opens.

The duo will add significant experience to the young Livingston squad meantime.

Capped thirteen times for Scotland earlier in his career, 30-year old Ross has featured for a number of clubs since leaving Rangers six years ago.

The right back has tasted football in England, Norway, Turkey and China, but was more recently attached to Motherwell, for whom he made a handful of appearances at the end of last season.

Fotheringham, meanwhile, has just returned from a spell with Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta, having previously turned out for both Dundee clubs, German side SC Freiburg and FA Aarau in Switzerland.

The 27-year old central midfielder started his career with Celtic and won Under 21 international honours as a youngster.

It is hoped that both players will be available for selection for Saturday's First Division visit to Ayr, but this is subject to registration procedures being completed in time.
