VETERAN goalkeeper Mark McGeown has added his experience to Queen's Park's promotion push after signing until the end of the season.
The former Stirling Albion, Stranraer, Airdrie United and Ayr United keeper, 39, made his debut in Saturday's 2-1 win at Montrose in place of injured Peter Hamilton.
Spiders boss Gardner Speirs actually completed a hat trick of signings in the past week after snapping up former Clyde and East Fife midfielder Paul Stewart and Motherwell's young striker Ryan Martin.
But it is the capture of McGeown, following his release from Queen of the South, which could have the biggest impact as Queen's youthful squad flirt with a play-off spot.
With Hamilton nursing a thigh injury, Scott Black loaned out to Rutherglen Glencairn and broken wrist victim Zander Cowie still a few weeks away from a comeback, Speirs moved quickly to sign McGeown.
And the Hampden boss said: "Mark has bags and bags of experience which will help us at the back.
"He wanted to continue playing so it is a win-win for both parties."
