KELTY HEARTS have secured a triple signing boost as they continue to rebuild their squad for next season's League One campaign.

New player / boss, Michael Tidser, yesterday (Wednesday) swooped to secure the services of former Clyde forward, Ross Cunningham; Stenhousemuir defender, Adam Corbett; and experienced Forfar Athletic wide man, Stefan McCluskey.

The trio have put pen to paper at New Central Park following the expiration of their contracts with their previous clubs, and follow on from Tidser's first acquisition, goalkeeper Kyle Gourlay, who arrived from Cove Rangers.

Having consolidated in the third tier, in their first season in the division since winning League Two, it is set to be a summer of change at New Central Park.

With previous boss, John Potter, taking up a role as technical director at Raith Rovers, following a consortium, including ex-Kelty managing director and general manager, Dean McKenzie, and sporting director, Andrew Barrowman, acquiring a controlling stake in the Kirkcaldy club, team captain Tidser was handed his first managerial role.

He has moved to tie down experienced defenders, Tam O'Ware and Jason Thomson, on new contracts, but lost a host of last season's squad.

Forward, Alfredo Agyeman, has agreed to join Falkirk, whilst club stalwart, Ross Philp, Joe Cardle, Kallum Higginbotham, Jamie Barjonas, Dougie Hill, Lewis Martin, Reis Peggie and Darren Jamieson all left with their contracts up.

Tidser, however, has begun the process of rebuilding, with Cunningham the first of three signings unveiled yesterday.

The 24-year-old, scored 10 times for Clyde as the Bully Wee failed to stave off relegation - they went down after a defeat to Annan Athletic in the League One play-off final - and netted three against Kelty, including a brace in a 3-0 win in August.

Corbett, also 24, began his career with Spartans, coming through the Edinburgh club's youth system, before joining Stenhousemuir in February 2021.

The centre back made 39 appearances for the Warriors during the season just finished, scoring once, and bolsters Tidser's defensive options.

Kelty's third and final deal of the deal was to bring in McCluskey, a former team-mate of Tidser's at Greenock Morton.

The experienced and versatile player, 32, has previously turned out for the likes of Clyde, Peterhead, Alloa Athletic and Dumbarton, before joining Forfar in the summer of 2021.

He made 40 appearances for the Loons last term, scoring eight times.
