DUNFERMLINE have completed the signing of Partick Thistle goalkeeper Ryan Scully on a six month loan deal.

Manager Jim Jefferies had been keen to secure an additional stopper to provide competition for Michal Hrivnak and Ryan Goodfellow and he is set to play at least 45 minutes in tomorrow's home friendly with Falkirk.

The Pars were tipped off about the 20 year-old by former number one Paul Gallacher, who moved to Firhill this summer in a player/coach role and Athletic have the option to extend the deal beyond January.

Scully featured for the Jags against the Pars last season, as he replaced the injured Scott Fox during a 5-1 drubbing in Maryhill in November.

He also enjoyed a brief loan stint at Albion Rovers last season, where he made six appearances.
