STEVIE CRAWFORD has completed his second Dunfermline signing in the space of 24 hours with the capture of St Johnstone's Aaron Comrie.

The 22-year-old, who was born in Kirkcaldy and brought up in Glenrothes, agreed a one-year deal - with an extension option for a second - yesterday afternoon, after the Press went to deadline.

His arrival follows that of former Dundee United and Ross County midfielder Ryan Dow, who put pen to paper for 12 months after electing to leave League Two champions Peterhead.

Right back Comrie spent much of his youth career at Celtic before joining Saints during the 2014/15 season, and quickly established himself in their development side.

He enjoyed a loan spell at Montrose during the following campaign - in which he scored the decisive goal against East Stirlingshire, which was their 900th league win - before making his first-team debut for the Perth side in September 2016.

Another temporary stint, this time at Peterhead, followed before he returned to McDairmid Park for the start of the 2017/18 campaign, making 13 appearances, but only played twice this term.

Earlier this week, Saints boss Tommy Wright decided against offering him a new deal, paving the way for a move to East End.

Speaking to the St Johnstone website, Wright said: "Aaron is at the age where he needs to be playing first-team football on a regular basis and I can’t promise that here.

"Aaron is a good player though and leaves with the best wishes of all the staff here at McDiarmid Park.”

Speaking to Press Sport yesterday (Wednesday), ahead of confirmation of Comrie's arrival, Crawford said he hoped to be in a position where "over the next couple of weeks, there will be another one or two" arrivals.

Earlier this week, he tied up goalkeepers Ryan Scully and Cammy Gill, central defender Lewis Martin, and reserve players Paul Allan and Thomas Bragg, on new contracts.

Crawford has been linked with Stranraer midfielder Kyle Turner, 21, but he is believed to be attracting interest from elsewhere.

Fans can hear from Crawford and assistant Greg Shields, and chairman Ross McArthur, at a Supporters Council meeting at East End tonight (Thursday).

It will be held in the Purvis Suite, with kick-off at 7pm.
