EXPERIENCED former Kirkintilloch Rob Roy midfielder Jordan McGuire has been snapped up by ambitious Irvine Meadow boss Brian McGinty,

He made his debut in the 1-0 home defeat against Cumbernauld United on Saturday and also scored in a 9-2 win away to Maybole in a friendly on Monday night. Con Boyle bagged a hat-trick, Eddie McTernan and Paul McQuilken each scored two apiece with a trialist also netting.

McGinty has high hopes for his new recruit and said: "Jordan is an experienced player who slots into midfield but also has an eye for goal and I think he will do well for us."

Defender Darren Miller could face a few weeks on the sidelines after suffering ankle ligament damage on Saturday.

McGinty said: "Darren is a real key player for us and will be missed but someone else will have the chance to show what they can do."

Meanwhile the manager and skipper Ben Carson are looking for a reaction following the weekend defeat as they head to Barrfields Park to face on-form Largs Thistle.

Added McGinty said: "We really must start winning games of football and find some consistency. We played well on Saturday but were lacking in the final third but we will take it a game at a time and will look to win at Largs on Saturday. It's an important game for us."

Carson added: "It was a frustrating result for us. We had a lot of the ball and created chances. We really must start taking them. We have to string some results together and try and get away from the bottom end of the table. It should be a good game at Largs and hopefully we will get a win."
