Stranraer have signed defender John Kane from junior outfit Glenafton.
John Kane was briefly with Partick Thistle
Blues manager Gerry Britton, who played alongside Kane at Motherwell, described the latest addition to his squad as an "imposing defender".
The 20-year-old joined Partick Thistle at the start of last season but made only one start and two substitute appearances before his release.
Britton told his club website: "He made a real impact at Glenafton, so we are hoping he can the same for us."
Kane, who began his career with Hibernian, is a former Scotland Under-18 international.
The Stranraer boss said that, apart from being a "good quality" centre-half, Kane could also play right-back and central midfield.
Britton added that he was still looking for an additional striker, midfielders and a centre-half, with a preference for left-sided players, as relegated Stranraer aim for a quick return to Division Two.
He was pleased to have 11 players signed up for the coming season compared to four at the same stage last term.
