The 20-year old made headlines last month when Lions manager Gary Holt selected him to start up-front against Rangers while Scotland international Lyndon Dykes completed his move to English Championship side QPR.

Now the front man has completed a move to Bayview for the rest of the season as Darren Young’s side become the fourth loan team of his young career following spells with Berwick Rangers, Alloa Athletic and Queen of the South.

Speaking to the Mail, Young said: “We’re delighted to get Jack on board.

“He’s a strong, quick boy who knows where the goals is and hopefully he along with the rest of our strikers can produce the goods. 

“Last year we had the second highest shots on target in the league, we are a creative side and it’s just a case of finishing chances off so hopefully the guys come back firing on all cylinders.”

Young also spoke about attracting yet another player to East Fife who had offers from higher divisions.

“It was a similar scenario with Danny Swanson, Jack had offers from the league above but felt he wanted to come to us.

“We are doing a lot right that we can attract these players and hopefully younger guys know they can come here and progress. 

“Anton Dowds is a good example, joining from Edinburgh Uni and two season later is playing full time.

“It was the same when I managed Albion and we signed Ross Stewart from juniors, players know if they do well for us then clubs higher up will pay attention.”
