Queen of the South manager James Fowler has confirmed the signing of three more players ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.
Deals had already been announced for Robbie Thomson, Ryan Conroy and assistant Gavin Skelton and they will now be joined by Darren Brownlie, Steven Higgins and Shaun Rutherford.
Brownlie (21) is a former Partick Thistle defender who was at Cowdenbeath last season, Higgins (19) arrives from Motherwell and Rutherford (18) makes the move from Livingston.
Fowler told the club website: “Rutherford is a player who impressed me when I watched him last year and Brownlie is someone I know well, having played with him for a short spell. As for Steven Higgins, he’s a young forward who is quick and has an eye for goal.”
