Three new faces

PostedAugust 9, 2010

Jimmy Nicholl added three new faces over the weekend with Richard Vauls, Lee Sibanda and Mark Smtih all agreeing deals.

"All three have been training with us and have really impressed me both in terms of ability and hunger to do well", said Nicholl.

"They have been given the opportunity to play first division football and it's up to them to take it."

19-year old Vauls, a left-back, is a Northern Irish youth internationalist who came through the Stoke City youth academy before spending last season with Stafford Rangers.

Attacking midfielder Lee Sibanda joins up from local amatuer side Cupar Hearts. The 26-year old started his career with Dunfermline Athletic, under the guidance of Jimmy Calderwood and Jimmy Nicholl, but his progress was hampered by a bad injury. Subsequently he had a spell in the Fife juniors and also spent the 2009/10 season in Australia with Doncaster Rovers SC.

Mark Smith (19), who can play in defence or midfield, came through the youth ranks at Hibernian before moving onto Motherwell last season.
