RAITH ROVERS have completed the signing of Dylan Easton from Airdrieonians.

The striker has teamed up with Ian Murray once more, as the new Starks Park boss secures his first signing.

The 28-year-old has joined on a two-year deal.

Easton was one of League One's top players last season, as he scored eight times and notched 12 assists.

Easton said: “I’m delighted to get it over the line, it’s been a mad couple of days to be honest since the Play-Off Final against Queens Park.

“The close season always gets interesting when you’re out of contract but i can’t wait to get started here at Raith Rovers.

“It’s been a very good year for me personally, picking up PFA Player Of The Year as well as Airdrie’s PoTY.

“It was something special, and it was nice to get the media recognition as well but if I can bring my performances from last season into my time here at the Rovers then I can only improve which is only a good thing.”

Speaking to Raith's official website, Murray added: “I’m extremely delighted to get my first signing done and dusted early doors, especially in the shape of Dylan.

“I obviously knew him from my time at Airdrie last season, but I also had him at Dumbarton as a kid.

“He needed to go away for a little while and find his feet, not just in Football, but in life.

“He always had that undoubted ability and I could see that from playing against him multiple times, he’s always been a dangerous player.

“I got a right good look at him last season and what exactly he could bring to my team, let alone any Football team, so to have him in my team again and on an extended deal at the Rovers is a fantastic start for us here."
