Scotland striker Stevie Crawford has signed a four-year deal with Division Two champions Plymouth Argyle.

Former Hibs and Millwall man Crawford, who scored 17 goals for Dunfermline last season, rejected the chance to stay with the Fife club last week.

"I'm still ambitious and wanted to play First Division football in England," Crawford said.

"Plymouth have proved their ambition to me and I am delighted to be signing for them. We both have ambition."

Argyle boss Bobby Williamson said he was delighted to secure Crawford.

"I tried to sign him when I was manager of Kilmarnock but lost out to Dunfermline, so I am pleased to have finally got him," he said.

"He is a Scottish international and it is a measure of how this club is progressing that he is joining us."

Crawford is manager Bobby Williamson's fifth signing from the Scottish Premier League.

Mathias Doumbe, Lee Makel, Steven Milne and Keith Lasley have also followed Williamson south of the border.

Crawford's agent Bill McMurdo said he was pleased with the deal.

"The deal is real security for Stevie," said McMurdo. "We have been deliberating between four or five clubs and Plymouth came good."
