All three played for the Fifers in the recent friendly match against Hearts, with the Jambos winning 3-0.

Matthew played the entire season at New Bayview last year, whilst Mark impressed on loan at Airdire United.

Rob has progressed from U19s football now that he is ineligible for that age group.

Jordan Morton has signed on at Colin Cameron's Cowdenbeath, also until January. The midfielder netted the opening goal in the Blue Brazil's 2-1 friendly win over Hearts earlier this month.

John McGlynn has also turned to his old club for reinforcements, securing Danny Thomson's services for Raith Rovers until the New Year.

Lithuanian striker Evaldas Razulis has returned to Kaunas on loan, whilst young midfielder David Kapustas has not had his contract renewed.
