East Stirlingshire manager, Craig Tully told official SPFL website: “Luke seems technically quite accomplished and will bring us a bit of a physical presence. We certainly don’t want to start over-using the loan system, but if we could find one or two more to improve us in specific positions, then we would consider it.”
