St Patrick's Athletic have further boosted their panel with a double signing ahead of the Airtricity League Premier Division restart on Friday night.

Stephen O'Donnell brings his men to Oriel Park to face Dundalk in the first league game back since the March lockdown.

Yesterday the Saints secured the services of Liliywhites attacker Georgie Kelly on loan and they've strengthened further with the acquisitions of Jordan Gibson and David Titov.

Winger Gibson, 22, joins the Saints from Bradford City. The ex-Rangers youth player had a recent loan spell at Stevenage.

Titov has spent the last five years at Brentford. The versatile 20-year-old Latvia Under-21 defender will offer O'Donnell cover across the back line as the manager prepares for a truncated season.

Kelly will not be eligible to be play against parent club Dundalk on Friday but Titov and Gibson have both received international clearance and are in contention to make their debuts.

"I'm delighted to get both Jordan and David signed," O'Donnell said.

"They're both going to be quality additions to the squad.  I look forward to working with them over the next few months.

"They've both come here to play first-team football, and hopefully they can show the league and St Pat’s fans what they can do. So overall we are delighted to get their signatures over the line and we are looking forward to working with them on the training pitch."
