Forward Gospel Ocholi joins from Scottish Championship side Partick Thistle and goalkeeper Ruairidh Adams from the Scottish Premiership’s Dundee United.

Ocholi, 19, has previously been loaned out to Dalbeattie Star and Gretna 2008 and Adams, 18, to Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale.

Ocholi, a modern apprentice at Partick since 2021, made his first-team debut that year in a Premier Sports Cup group-stage fixture against Dumbarton.

Adams joined United as a 16-year-old from Lothian Thistle, having already made his senior debut in a Scottish Cup tie with Banks o’ Dee, playing for United’s B side of late.

The teenage loanees’ arrivals at Netherdale coincide with striker Zander Murray’s departure to League 2’s Bonnyrigg Rose after three seasons in Galashiels.
