Jason Talbot is Allan Johnston’s first Dunfermline signing



Allan Johnston has made Livingston skipper Jason Talbot his first signing for Dunfermline.

The 29-year-old left the Lions, who currently have a transfer embargo, at the end of the season after seven years at the club and has now penned a one-year deal to join the Pars.

Talbot said he was “delighted” to sign for Dunfermline


The left-back moved north from Port Vale to play for Livingston in the First Division in 2008 and proved a key figure in the club’s climb back up the leagues after they were demoted to the bottom tier the following year amidst financial troubles.

The one-time Bolton Wanderers trainee skippered the Lions to success in April’s Petrofac Training Cup final and will now be hoping to repeat his Almondvale successes with Dunfermline.

He said on social media: “I’m delighted to have signed with Dunfermline and I’m looking forward to the forthcoming season.

“I would also like to thank Livingston and the fans for the past seven years – lots of memories and good times.”
