The East Fife winger joined Shire on a short-term loan deal until January and, with that deal now completed, the 18-year-old heads back to Bayview hoping to break into Stevie Crawford’s first team plans.

The Fifers sit bottom of cinch League 1 on 13 points after 19 matches but are getting a player ready to make an impact, according to Ure.

"Jack’s been an excellent addition to our side and I really do wish him and East Fife all the very best for the rest of the season,” he said.
