KELTY HEARTS are set to unveil six "exciting" new signings this Sunday as they continue to reshape their squad for next season.

The ambitious New Central Park outfit, who finished third in their maiden Lowland League season, are inviting supporters to an open day that will also include the launch of next season's home and away kit.

Boss Barry Ferguson, who has been linked with bringing players such as freed East Fife defender Scott Linton, and ex-Forfar and Clyde midfielder Dylan Easton, to the club, moved quickly to agree pre-contacts following the conclusion of their campaign and said that he has completed "most of the business" he was looking for.

While he is set to welcome half-a-dozen new faces to Kelty, he will be looking to appoint a new skipper after it was revealed Shaun Greig is to retire from the game.

The 32-year-old, who joined the club in 2014 from Kirkcaldy YM, could return in a coaching capacity following his decision to hang up his boots to focus on a new business venture.

In addition to Greig, who Hearts said would "arguably go down as the club's most successful captain", Kelty revealed that goalkeeper Scott Christie and forward Scott Dalziel will also leave this summer.

Shot-stopper Christie, who signed from Bo'ness United in the summer of 2017, is set to secure what the club said was a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at a full-time club in the SPFL" and departs after breaking a club record for the most shut-outs in a season – 18 – since Hearts played in the Fife Junior League more than 20 years ago.

A statement released by the club said: "Captain Shaun Greig has made the decision to hang up his boots after a successful five years at New Central Park, where he lifted three league titles and a cup win.

"Skip has a new business starting up where his time could be limited, and feels now is the right time to pass on the armband as the club enters a new era.

"The gaffer, the club and Shaun have had positive talks on him returning to the club in a coaching capacity once his business is up and running.

"Shaun will arguably go down as the club's most successful captain, a classy individual who was nothing short of a hero in his time here.

"Inchy (Christie) has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at a full-time club in the SPFL and Scott, whose game time has been limited this season, has decided to move on to get regular football in the latter part of his career.

"We would like to thank both players for their commitment, skill and attitude during their time at New Central Park."

During their time with Kelty, Greig and Dalziel won two East Region Super League junior titles, the East of Scotland League and the King Cup.

In addition to having the chance to meet the players, management team and get a first look at their new kit, Kelty supporters can also snap up season tickets for next season on Sunday from 12pm.
