Cowdenbeath have snapped up former Motherwell and Birmingham City starlet Fraser Kerr on a short-term deal.
The 22-year-old has signed for Colin Nish’s side until January after being released by the Steelmen at the end of last season.
Kerr emerged through the youth ranks at Motherwell before he was lured to Birmingham City at the age of 16, where he failed to make a single senior appearance.
He returned to Fir Park in 2012, initially on loan, before signing a permanent two-year deal the following summer.
He played 25 games last season, with his final outing coming in a Lanarkshire derby defeat against Hamilton in April, and was deemed surplus to requirements by Ian Baraclough.
However, Nish will hope Kerr can inspire an upturn in the Blue Brazil’s fortunes after a run of one win from five matches which sees them languishing in eighth spot in League One. He is likely make his Cowden debut against Albion Rovers on Saturday.
