SAUCHIE JUNIORS have added to their ranks, bringing in two new strikers to add some firing power up top.

The Reds have signed Mikey Cunningham from East Fife and Marc Sludden, who played for Rosyth prior to them folding.

The two strikers will provide new attacking options, adding to Ross Kavanagh, who signed a new deal last week and Mark Smith, who extended his contract on Monday.

Speaking to the club, manager Fraser Duncan said he was delighted to get the two signings over the line.

“Absolutely delighted to finally get Mikey into the club,” he said. “He’s a player we have been after for some time and he will really add a great attacking threat to us.

“We are really happy to get Mikey to Beechwood and hope he settles in quickly and will be an excellent and big part of what we want to do.

“Marc is a good lad and we found out the bad news about Rosyth’s situation which is terrible and it’s never nice to see these things happen.

“Marc needs a club where he can get his head down and show what he can do. He will fit in well and will give us great attacking options along with what we have.

“Marc can now get settled down and concentrate on his football.”

These two signings will provide a big boost to Fraser Duncan, who himself put pen to paper and signed a one year extension with Sauchie, alongside his entire backroom staff.

Speaking to Advertiser Sport last week, the Reds boss wanted to lay some confidence in his side by signing a new deal himself, hoping to draw some of the players to new deals.

This has already started to pay off, with star striker Ross Kavanagh signing an extension last week, and Mark Smith following in his footsteps on Monday evening.

Speaking to the club on his new deal, Smith said: “When offered a new contract, it wasn’t something I had to think too much about.

“It’s a great club with good players and management. So it was just right for me to stay. I’ve enjoyed my football and that’s the main thing.

“I’ve settled in really well since signing. Everyone around the club made me feel very welcome and boys were great with me.

“We all know it’s just been one of those seasons with injuries not going for us. We have a great squad and hopefully next season we will have a lot of us still together to really push.”

Sauchie’s new signings made their matchday debut against Dundonald Bluebell on Saturday, a 1-1 draw, with Mark Smith earning his extension by scoring the equaliser.

The Reds travel to Dunbar this Saturday.
