Manager Jim Weir has snapped up defensive trio Cammy Eadie, Ross McKinnon and Stephen Bronsky after they showed up well in trial appearances.

All three played in Wednesday night’s 4-1 defeat against a young Celtic eleven for Mark Nicolson’s testimonial match.

“I just felt they’ve done fairly well over the pre-season and irt was an area we needed to strengthen,” said Weir.

“We had a good chat with them and they’ve committed to the club so we are delighted.”

Eadie (19) came through the ranks at Falkirk while fellow centre back Bronsky (23) was twice on the winning side for Annan Athletic against City last season.

Left-sided defender McKinnon (24) had a spell with Elgin in the past and has also seen service with Motherwell, Dumbarton, Alloa and Clyde.

All three will come into Weir’s squad for Saturday’s Betfred Cup group match at Dunfermline Athletic, City’s first competitive match of their 18th Scottish League campaign.

Eadie, McKinnon and Bronsky join midfielder Jon-Paul McGovern and striker Calum Ferguson as new signings for Elgin over the close season.

The manager said he is keen to add another attacker, with last season’s top scorer Shane Sutherland not expected to play until the winter as he recovers from a cruciate knee operation.
