Stirling Albion have signed 18-year-old left-back Leo Watson on loan from Hearts until January 2022.

The move comes following the recent departure of Ciaran Summers, who has moved to England for work reasons.

Manager Kevin Rutkiewicz said: “Leo is a player we have tracked for some time. Having seen him as a younger player it’s exciting to see his progression and bring him into the senior environment. His loan spell at Bonnyrigg will stand him in good stead and I expect him to be a competitive figure in the squad.”
