It was a busy transfer deadline day for Montrose boss Paul Hegarty yesterday with five new signings bolstering a squad still chasing its first league win of the season.

Ex-Peterhead captain Callum MacDonald signed a one-year deal following three impressive displays as a trialist which included a vital headed goal against Annan Athletic at the weekend.

The 33-year-old has been out of the game for the last few years recovering from a cruciate ligament injury.

In addition, youngsters Cammy Ballantyne from Dundee United, Jonny Court and David McKay from Raith Rovers, and Scott Hynd from Alloa Athletic have all arrived at Links Park on loan until January.

Hegarty said: “Callum is a really experienced defender who has been unlucky with injuries in recent years.

“He is back to his best now and has performed very well in the three games he has played for us this season as a trialist.

“All the young kids come highly recommended. They will add quality and competition to our squad and the experience they well gain from playing in League 2 will be invaluable in their development.”

The club also confirmed that full back Iain Campbell has extended his contract until January 2017 having initially signed a short one month deal at the start of August.
