NAIRN County have bolstered their much-weakened squad with a swoop for two former Scottish Football League players.

The Highland League club, who have had an average of seven players unavailable during their opening run of games, desperately needed new faces in and their two new arrivals have impressive CVs.

Boss Les Fridge has signed former Hamilton, Morton and Livingston midfielder Kyle Wilkie.

The 23-year-old Glaswegian, whose youth career kicked off at Stockport County, spent three years at Hamilton from 2009 before he went on to join Morton for a season.

Last summer, he signed a one-year deal for Scottish Championship side Livingston, making 20 appearances overall, but was freed in May.

Fridge has also recruited another midfielder, 21-year-old Bradley Halsman.

He began as a youth player at Aberdeen before going on to Motherwell where he captained their under-17s.

In 2012, he was snapped up by Partick Thistle as an under-19 player, but only one top team appearance saw him released last year.

Nairn, who have lost their opening four competitive fixtures, have no fixture this Saturday as they look to get players back from injury.

They return to action next Wednesday when they travel to in-form AJG Parcels North of Scotland Cup semi-finalists Wick Academy.
