New Falkirk defender Lewis Kidd admits he is thrilled to have joined the Bairns on a two-year contract, despite conceding that he has left some of his best friends at Queen of the South.
The former Celtic right-back has moved to Westfield following two-and-a-half years at Palmerston.
Kidd initially joined the Doonhamers on loan from the Hoops in February 2014 before making the switch permanent that summer.
Kidd said: “I’m delighted to sign with Falkirk and looking forward to the challenge ahead. I can’t wait to get started.
“I would just like to say a massive thanks to everyone involved with Queen of the South; the fans, the players and the backroom staff.
“I’ve had an amazing two years at the club, have some great memories and made some best mates for life. I wish them all the best going forward.”
Falkirk manager Peter Houston said: “I am delighted to be able to sign Lewis, he is a player who I have kept an eye on for some time.
“He has impressed any time I have watched him with his attacking attributes in particular a real stand out.
“I look forward to watching him closely in action over the course of pre-season.”
