Former Hearts & Kilmarnock midfielder Scott Robinson backed to rediscover form at East Fife



East Fife boss Gary Naysmith has backed Scott Robinson to kick-start his career after the former Hearts and Kilmarnock midfielder completed a shock move to Methil.

Robinson, 24, has penned a one-year deal with the League One outfit after impressing during a short trial period.

The diminutive playmaker was a free agent after being released by Fife rivals Dunfermline last month, ending an uninspiring spell at East End Park which saw him make two appearances at the tail end of the campaign.

Nevertheless, Robinson does boast more than 100 top-flight outings during his stints at Hearts and Killie and became the SPL’s youngest ever player when he debuted for the Jambos at the age of 16 in 2008.

Naysmith told “Scott has played over 100 games for Hearts and Kilmarnock in recent years and although he is still only 24, he comes with a lot of top flight experience.

“He is someone who likes to put his foot on the ball and control games. His career has been a bit stop start in the last two seasons but I am delighted that he has chosen us to get his career back on track.”

The Fifers have also completed the signing of ex-Morton and Dumbarton ace Tony Wallace.

The towering midfielder trained with the Bayview outfit last year but chose to join Nairn County in the Highland League, however Naysmith was delighted to finally get his man this summer.
