DUNFERMLINE have completed their second signing of the day by snapping up Kevin O'Hara from Alloa Athletic.

The former Falkirk player has joined on a three-year contract after a mutually agreed compensation arrangement was made between both clubs.

O'Hara, 21, began his professional career with the Bairns before switching to the Wasps last summer.

He scored 14 goals in 35 games - including in a 3-1 win over Dunfermline in December - and previously worked with Pars head coach Stevie Crawford while in Falkirk's youth ranks.

O'Hara told the club's website: "I am absolutely delighted to come to Dunfermline, it is a massive club and I have enjoyed playing here over the years.

"I am a Dunfermline player now and my aim is to score goals and make Dunfermline as good as it could be."

Crawford commented: "Last year Kevin was given a platform by Peter Grant at Alloa and he did fantastically well for them. He probably got a bit of belief in himself that he could score goals at that level.

"We are very fortunate that we have somebody coming in at 21 years of age with a good part of his career now ahead of him."

Three years ago, O'Hara was handed an eight-game ban by the Scottish Football Association for excessive misconduct relating to an incident involving then Pars midfielder Dean Shiels.

O'Hara and team-mate Joe McKee were issued notices of complaint following a bad-tempered Irn-Bru cup tie between the clubs.

Towards the end of the game, which Pars lost 2-0, Shiels was sent off for a late challenge on McKee.

Following the match, however, it was alleged that both O'Hara and McKee, who was banned for four games, had made malicious comments about Shiels' missing eye.

O'Hara subsequently apologised for the incident.
