Irvine Meadow co-manager Colin Spence says he is delighted to further strengthen his squad with a trio of signings ahead of their second season in the West of Scotland Football League (WoSFL).

Medda have added across the pitch in recent weeks, starting at the back, bringing in goalkeeper Marc Waters from Petershill on a two-year deal.

In defence they have added in a player from across the divide snatching up former Kilwinning Rangers centre half Jamie White on a one-year deal.

Meadow also signed up a player from another WoSFL Premier Division side, signing former Cumnock midfielder Kyle Faulds, on a one-year deal.

Speaking to the Times, Spence said: “It was a bit of a saga with Marc but we were glad to finally get him over the line and that gives us two top drawer goalkeepers at the club.

“Jamie is from Irvine, so he knows what the club is all about, he is a strong, quick, athletic and it was a good signing to get him into the club.

“Kyle is an ex-teammate of mine at Auchinleck Talbot, so I know him pretty well.

“He is a ball playing midfielder and we are delighted to be able to add him into the team.

The signings have all been made prior to the club starting their pre-season campaign ahead of the return to competitive football on July 17.

Spence says the club returned to training last week but will be looking to ramp up the intensity soon ahead of a busy friendly fixture list.

“We just started back training last week and we eased them back in, from this week however we will ramp up the training and it will be a lot of hard graft for the players.

“Our first pre-season fixture is not until June 19 when we play Fauldhouse United away, so we have a good couple of weeks of training before then.”

The easing of COVID-19 restrictions across Scotland means that fans could be allowed back into Meadow Park for their pre-season games, with Spence saying the team have missed their twelfth man.

“It will great for the fans to get back in and for our new players to experience playing in front of the fans.

“We have a very vocal support and when things are going good they can really help you and it can sometimes add to your game as well.”
