NEWMAINS UNITED have signed Slovakian midfielder Martin Janik.
The former professional footballer made his mark in the Czech Republic, where he was on the books of top flight side MFK Karvina.
But a foot injury hampered his career before he headed for Scotland.
Now after putting pen-to-paper at Victoria Park he’s fully focused on helping drive Newmains up the table.
Janik said: “There is a great bunch of guys at the club and they have already made me feel really welcome.
“It’s a good atmosphere in the team and I’m hoping I can have a positive impact on the squad and we can start getting the results we want.
“The management team have been excellent since I arrived too and I’m hoping I can give back to them by performing on a Saturday.
“I’m excited to see what will happen over the next few months. There is a real desire to win which is what I like.”
