Alex Harris signs two year deal with Falkirk

Former Hibs’ winger Alex Harris has joined Falkirk on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old  burst onto the scene at Easter Road in Season 2012/2013 and scored a memorable goal in a 4-3 victory over the Bairns in the Scottish Cup Semi Final at Hampden Park.

An injury against Motherwell during the opening game of the following season hampered his progress with the club.

The midfielder went on to make 59 appearances for Hibs  but also enjoyed loan spells at both Dundee FC and Queen of the South FC in recent years.

Speaking after putting pen to paper at The Falkirk Stadium, Alex Harris said told the club website: “It’s good to get the move done and dusted and I am really looking forward to getting started.

“It’s great to meet the manager and everyone around the place has made me feel so welcome already. Falkirk have always been a tough team to play against, I know the stadium well and the surroundings.

“I know James McDonaugh from his time at Hibs and a few of the boys having played with them before too.

“I’ve been keeping fit throughout the summer so now it is all about working hard and making a good start to pre-season.”

Falkirk manager, Peter Houston added: “I am really pleased to secure the services of Alex for the next two years. He is a player who has massive potential and I know will be keen to hit the ground running come pre-season.

“He made a big impact when he first broke into the Hibernian team and impressed me anytime we played against him while he was on loan at Queen of the South.

“He already has a good relationship with James McDonaugh from their time together at Hibernian so he is a player that, as a coaching team, we have good awareness of.”
