The Pars are looking near and far when it comes to their summer recruitment for a League One title push.

Broxburn Athletic have announced Michael Beagley has signed with James McPake`s men.

He joins on a two year deal.

Just looked him up. He’s 17, so probably an academy signing?

Looks like he was with Hearts until February and seems to have done okay at Right Back

"Another player departing the Albyn is Michael Beagley who is destined for a SFL side after some excellent trials with clubs in recent months . Michael , a local lad , signed up for some experience after being released by Hearts at the turn of the year and was delighted to get on the score sheet in the 7-1 win over Fauldhouse Utd . His inclusion in the recent Scotland squads for internationals indicates the talent he has .We wish Michael all the best for what looks like a rosy future."

He will be an integral part of the first team squad. Could be an inspired find, lots of good young players at that level you’ve either been released from spfl teams and flourished and developed since leaving. Scouting system should be sourcing these players.

We lost 12 players (including 5 loanees) at the end of last season. We must have had a squad of 27 inflated due to the loanees brought in to `fight` relegation. Counting this young lad Beagley we are now up to 18 on the books. What size of squad can we expect as a League 1 club - 22? That would leave only 4 more signings, let`s hope they are good ones.

We need still I’d say at least 8 signings. Goalkeeper, left nack( if Fenton to be loaned out, back up if not) 2 centre halfs and wingers as we currently have none. I’d be tempted to send Paul Allan on loan so we could get another centre mid in as he doesn’t look ready for first team at us imo

I reckon we will get 5 more signings, Scott Fox, Kirk Broadfoot, Ciaran McKenna, Chris Burke and Declan McDaid

Depending on what style James plays we will need more than 2 wingers..

We defo have to get at least a couple of wingers or even just wider midfielders in and some forward thinking attacking midfielders.

I don’t see any creativity in the squad as it stands. Getting the right creatives types will likely make or break our season. We don’t appear to have anyone to take a decent set piece either, unless dorrans stays on and was he even decent at them? Work to be done me thinks!

If toddy, o’hara and wighton stay on then would like to see McCann get loaned out.

Things will be looking up……..now yogi is gone!

There`s some on that list Red Star who would be able to do us a good turn and by all accounts Broadfoot is a good leader and role model. Signing them all wouldn`t fit in with the CEO`s stated objective of building a young and hungry squad though. I would say we need a minimum of a goalie, centre back and 2 wide players.

I’d still hope we can move some players on. Dorrans and Chalmers I’d be happy to see us get rid of if someone is daft enough to take either of them

can`t see chalmers being moved on when we paid a fee and he has a year on his contract.

I actually think he might be ok in league 1 you would assume in that league we might have more possession so that might suit him.

With regards to signings I agree we need creative players if we do that and we are keeping the three strikers already at the club I think they would do some damage.

Folk need to take into consideration that our strikers played in a negative team last season they had no chance in my opinion

That`s a very specific list red star.
Are they your wish list,? or names you may have heard mentioned?

The flame still burns

Totally agree.

McCann is developing but I wouldn`t put him out on loan - we`re in league one, he should get the chance to kick on at this level with us.

The others all have a good track record at other clubs. O`Hara and Wighton were scoring goals under Crawford.

If they were at other clubs they`d be on our radar as signing targets.

Still nothing about the Beagley signing on COWS which seems odd.

Lewis has also started pre season early, doing sessions with Cardle...

Matty Todd has been in also starting pre season early! Great application from the young lads!

So we have toddy, McCann, o’hara and wighton fighting for 2 roles at best.

I struggle to see McCann being a starter against combinations of the other 3, if he’s not he might as well be out on loan, another season on the bench for us doesn’t do anyone any good. If we can loan wighton or toddy ou then obviously keep McCann.

Depends on what mcpake is looking for from his striking options…
